This one hour online webinar on October 27th at 11am is for those working within a local authority wondering how it’s possible to bring creativity into strategic planning in a meaningful way.
This event is in partnership with Reimagine, a Creative Ireland-funded placemaking programme by the Irish Architecture Foundation, working with communities across Ireland.
Charles Landry believes that shifting thinking from a ‘no because’ culture to a ‘yes, if’ culture within a bureaucracy can be empowering, and that it is possible to achieve. We are delighted that Charles Landry will join us to talk about participative citizenship, creative bureaucracy and the importance of imagination and culture as creative forces in the area of placemaking. Sligo County Council and Cork City Council will also present exemplar projects.
Kells Creative Placemaking
An example of how harnessing the energy, enthusiasm, professionalism and commitment to Kells regeneration by the community in its broadest sense, has led to tangible outcomes
RIOT (curated conversations) in Sligo County Council
An example of how probing the role of culture in the development and regeneration of small cities has made an impact on the local authority.
Cork City Council
Ardú is a new street arts initiative delivered in partnership with Cork City Council Arts Office in 2020 and supported by the Creative Ireland Programme. Ardú was underpinned by a street arts development programme that aims to create an integrated approach to place-making, support the input of the arts sector and communities and foster cross-sectoral collaboration within the local authority.
The session will conclude with a Q&A, to assist with making the speakers’ insights about collaboration and culture-led regeneration processes easy to apply to your own particular contexts. The output from this event will be published on the Reimagine website.
We look forward to seeing you there!
