Community Creations is a social change organisation founded in early 2004 by Ruairí McKiernan and friends Keith Corcoran and Anna Lally to promote positive social change in the community. It operates a website intended to be an online youth health and citizenship initiative in Ireland, and organizes other programs such as a Shared Heritage Initiative, a Community Media Programme and a Young Artists Scheme. Projects also include youth magazines, community websites, an Asylum Seeker support programme, heritage campaigning, advocacy on ASBOS, art exhibitions, fundraising concerts and consultancy services to the HSE, Ombudsman for Children's Office and World Health Organization.
