 The Culture Team of Wicklow County Council is hosting two public information and consultation workshops on Thursday 1st February and would like to invite all interested individuals and groups in Wicklow to attend.  A morning facilitated workshop will take place at Arklow Library from 11.00 am to 1.00 pm and an evening one in the Mermaid Arts Centre, Bray from 7.00 to 9.00 pm.

 Wicklow’s Culture Team has come together to prepare the county’s first five year Creative Ireland Strategic Plan which is due to be launched this year. The Plan seeks to put a supporting framework in place for enhanced public engagement with culture and creativity among communities and individuals in County Wicklow in line with Creative Ireland – the Government’s legacy programme for Ireland 2016.

 The public information and consultation workshops will be an opportunity for interested individuals to meet with members of the Culture Team, find out more about the emerging strategy and to share ideas and feedback. Wicklow’s Culture Team is particularly interested in meeting members of our arts and heritage communities; members of societies and community groups as well as individuals with an interest in all forms of culture and creativity.Attendance is FREE and open to all but places are limited.
