Reimagine Aughrim – Suppose a Stone

Reimagine Aughrim – Suppose a Stone
Community partner: Kunstverein Aughrim, Aughrim Tidy Towns, Aughrim Active Retirement Group
Architect: Jenny O’Leary

Aughrim’s project ‘Suppose a Stone’ aims to develop a pathway for making ‘The Granite City’ of Aughrim, Co. Wicklow more accessible for all ages and abilities and multiple species.

Aughrim project is one of five around the country selected for Reimagine Hometown Architect initiative, a programme which focuses on the revitalisation of Ireland’s towns and villages.

The ‘Suppose a Stone’ team is undertaking an all-ages, interspecies accessibility audit of the town of Aughrim.

    This community project was launched as part of Aughrim’s St Patrick’s Day Parade on 17 March. Visitors to Kunstverein Aughrim were invited to complete a worksheet, aimed at discovering and uncovering some of the successes and challenges of Aughrim’s built environment. Based on these findings, they have devised a series of workshops on specific issues within the local built environment, towards developing and testing potential solutions. ‘Suppose a Stone’ prioritises accessibility through creativity and inclusivity, with a long-term vision of radical hospitality for all.
