Creative Climate Action: ACT Waterford

Transport, domestic energy, green spaces and consumption are the central themes of ACT Waterford, one of 15 projects from all around the country that are being funded by Creative Ireland through its €2 million Creative Climate Action fund.

The Creative Waterford Team in Waterford City and County Council will team up with Waterford Institute of Technology to engage with five different communities around the city and county to address these vital themes through dialogue.

By recruiting creatives, imaginative approaches will be brought to address these issues and explore solutions. Along the way, this creative artistic output will be shared through public exhibitions and digitally too. At key milestones during the year, Town Hall meetings — both in person and online — will allow the communities to share their experiences and the progress they have made addressing issues. 

A purpose-built website will assist communities, creatives and the project team in showcasing images and alerting the public to information-sharing events and more. Libraries, museums, galleries and Waterford’s vibrant festivals such as Spraoi, Waterford Walls and Winterval, will provide a public platform for the communities and creatives involved.

From September 2021 to the end of 2022, ACT Waterford will help communities around Waterford to build for a sustainable and post-COVID future that embed creativity into the community.
