CREATE TOGETHER, CIACLA’S 2022 program is a series of creative platforms both in person and online that  showcases and promotes Contemporary Art and Culture from leading Irish and Los Angeles based artists working in the visual arts, film, theatre, music and literature. The program focuses on bringing our community together both online through this difficult COVID-19 pandemic and in person when time allows, all heading towards connecting with new audiences through innovative creative platforms.

CIACLA is delighted to announce our Creative Support Platform - a call out for applications of support to the Los Angeles community of artists, curators, actors, musicians, filmmakers and all Irish & Irish American creatives working in LA or California.

Culture Chats is a round table discussion that intertwines cultural and social conversations with performance; while delving into the minds of some of the leading contemporary voices in Irish culture.
