READ ON is a 48-month, European project that aims to reignite a passion for reading amongst young people, specifically focused on those between the ages of 12 and 19.
You’ll find all the READ ON events we’ve arranged through the years here.
The Programme is delivered through 7 partner organisations across 6 EU countries (Ireland, Italy, Norway, Portugal, Spain and the UK). The Irish component is delivered by West Cork Music in collaboration with Cork County Library & Arts Service. READ ON is funded by the EU Creative Europe programme and undertaken with the support of the Arts Council.
