Celebrate New Stories

If you’re interested in deeper engagement with our programmes, you can support brilliant and diverse events, exceptional writing and outreach programmes that empower audiences from diverse ages and backgrounds to feel the benefit of books and reading.  Our work will go further than our April festival. As an example, this year we will:

  • create developmental opportunities for writers at every stage of their career and from every part of society.
  • launch a dedicated outreach programme to increase access to the festival to under-supported communities.
  • develop an action plan to increase accessibility at Cúirt, with surtitles, live captions and transcription, and ISL interpretation.
  • evolve our programmes for children and young people.

Become a corporate partner and help Cúirt grow.
