Reimagine Café – Waterford’s placemaking successes

Event

Theme: Waterford’s placemaking successes
When: 10 May, 1-2pm

Register in advance for this meeting here.

The Reimagine Café is a community space for all those involved in placemaking and reimagining their built environment, meeting one Tuesday a month. On 10 May, we will hear the stories behind the success stories  in Waterford, a county gaining recognition for its walkable city and vibrant towns. We will hear from the Waterford Cultural Quarter team; Emma Loo from The Walls Project; and a Waterford City and County Council architect about their respective placemaking work and its cumulative impact for County Waterford.

The Walls Project CLG is a social enterprise which delivers large scale public artworks and outreach projects. There are 4 main pillars to The Walls Project. Waterford Walls Festival impacts communities through artistic collaborations. They deliver large scale public and private art commissions across Ireland. Their work engages with communities and students via community and educational outreach workshops. They also engage in artistic exchanges and collaborations focused on connecting diverse people and communities both in Ireland and internationally.
