Building Creative Communities Workshops

The Waterford Culture Team is currently rolling out its “Culture and Creativity Strategy 2018 -2022” as part of the national Creative Ireland programme.  As part of this process and as a core pillar of the Creative Ireland programme Waterford is working to enable creativity in every community.

To commence this process they have developed a Cultural Communities Toolkit. This Toolkit is intended to help individuals and communities alike to understand what is available to them should they wish to create new cultural or creative programmes or activities in their local area.  This workshop is the first stage in building cultural communities across the county.

Who should attend?
Individuals or groups interested in developing their local culture, those building new cultural or creative programmes (e.g. drama groups, walking trail etc) Tidy Towns representatives, artists, creatives and venue managers etc.

What will I get from attending?
The workshop will provide an overview of the Cultural Communities Toolkit, allowing participants to get a better understanding of how culture can build sustainable communities, providing tips for developing successful cultural programmes which relate to specific communities and for developing successful marketing and awareness building for local events and programmes and understanding where funding can be sourced both locally and nationally to support your ideas. At the end of the workshop you will have a clearer understanding of how best to work together to enhance creativity and culture in your local area.
