Reimagine Projects Around Ireland


Reimagine: Call for Projects

Reimagine: Call for Projects

The Irish Architecture Foundation has launched an open call for communities around Ireland to apply to their Reimagine placemaking programme.

Deadline May 16th 2021

Four successful projects will receive support from the Irish Architecture Foundation and its Reimagine Professional Panel, a multi-disciplinary group of architectural, placemaking, spatial and design professionals to develop projects which will improve the built environment of their local community.

Every person in Ireland should be able to feel safe, connected, healthy and at home in their built environment, and co-creating this sense of belonging is key to the work of Reimagine.

Reimagine matches architects with local partners and projects, enabling communities to play an active role in the development of their neighbourhoods, streetscapes, parks, villages and towns. It is vital that local insight and tacit knowledge are integral to the final design solutions, fostering a sense of agency, ownership and pride among communities.

Projects may take the form of creative consultations, collaborative research, temporary installations, spatial interventions, tactical urbanism projects, or pilots for ambitious urban realm projects.

Project selection will aim to reflect a geographical range, as well as diversity in themes, groups and outcomes. We are especially interested in projects which connect with the following themes:
Town Centre Living
Climate Change and Biodiversity
Access & Inclusion
Reuse, Renovation
Public Realm

This programme is open to applications from, but not limited to:

Voluntary and Community Organisations; Non-Profits; Cultural Organisations; Local Authorities; Public Bodies;  Project groups should have a demonstrated link to the location of the project.

Reimagine is made possible by the Creative Ireland Programme’s National Creativity Fund and the Department of Housing, Local Government and Heritage. Reimagine is further supported by  IAF core funders the Arts Council and the OPW.
