Reimagine Selected for Creative Climate Action Fund

Reimagine Selected for Creative Climate Action Fund

Reimagine is one of 14 projects selected nationwide as part of Creative Ireland’s Creative Climate Action Fund. This Creative Ireland initiative supports creative, cultural and artistic projects that build awareness around climate change and empowers citizens to make meaningful behavioural changes.

“Workers’ Villages”  was selected from from an impressive 166 applications.  “Worker’s Villages” will see The Irish Architecture Foundation work with residents of three Bord na Móna villages in the Midlands regarding the changing future for locals and will reimagine a more sustainable future for their communities. This project is a reflection on the legacy of architect Frank Gibney, who created a new template for rural design and development. As we reconsider our relationship with the land and consider new energy alternatives, architects will be working closely with communities at the heart of Just Transition to ensure their voices are not left out of the conversation.

Partners on this project are environmental organisation Global Action Plan, as well as the School of Architecture in UL.

In 2021,  Evelyn D’Arcy and David Jameson will be collaborating with the residents of Cloontuskert Village in Roscommon. In 2022, two more Architects/Architect teams will start working with communities in Longford and Offaly.
