Twelve grants have been allocated to a range of community groups, organisations and individuals in Waterford City and County.
Katherine Collins, Creative Waterford Coordinator said “Communities and individuals are invited to see themselves as co-creators of their own cultural and creative experiences and to mobilise communities of interest. Creative Waterford encourages new, ambitious, and meaningful collaborations between people and communities, and professionals such as artists, archaeologists, historians, archivists and everyone else involved in the culture and creative sectors within Waterford. We are delighted to work with these projects and are excited to see how they develop during the year.”
