What is Culture Night? 


Culture Night / Oíche Chultúir is brought to you by the Arts Council; it is a national moment, celebrating culture, creativity and the arts and seeks to actively promote the belief that this rich and varied culture is alive, treasured and nurtured in people’s lives, today and every day. 


It is delivered nationwide in cities, towns, villages and rural locations as well as online and through media partners. Over 1.1 million people engaged with Culture Night in 2021. 

Doors are opened late and special and unique events are specifically programmed at participating locations and, thanks to the continued support of the Arts Council and Local Authorities across the island of Ireland, all activities are made available to the public free of charge. 

Why is We Act taking part in Culture Night?


Charity and community work is part of our culture; looking out for your neighbours, washing the jerseys for your local team, hosting a coffee morning for a hospice, campaigning for causes you’re passionate about, or providing care, dignity and understanding for those who need it most. 


We want to celebrate that aspect of our culture in all its forms.


We want to share the work of organisations like yours, face to face, with your local communities and the wider public. And we are excited, after two years of closed doors and social distancing, to finally open up again and let people in!  

We Act is a campaign that’s all about celebrating the charity and community sector. It’s also about breaking down barriers and increasing understanding between the public and the organisations at work in their communities.


Since the very beginning of this campaign, it was an ambition to literally open the doors of charities and community groups around Ireland, and to let the public see inside and Culture Night is the perfect opportunity!
