The COVID-19 crisis gives rise to many challenges for the nation and is having an unprecedented impact on the arts, culture, heritage and Gaeltacht sectors.
It has never been more important to equip the sector with the technology and skills to respond to the systemic shifts required to keep up with the rising demand for content delivered via digital audio-visual technologies. The future of audio visual entertainment will rely heavily on digital content and streaming to promote, stimulate growth and prevent further job losses.
The Séamus Ennis Arts Centre (TSEAC) is a dedicated, purpose-built arts and culture facility which closed its physical doors on 12th March 2020. Since then, the centre is repurposing itself to offer high quality arts, culture and education programmes online through hiring of equipment at an unsustainable substantial cost. This project aims to support the TSEAC in securing their own suitable audiovisual equipment which will ensure that the centre continues to support the arts, culture and heritage of the County through the continued employment of creative practitioners to provide high quality online digital content for streaming and live virtual shows.
This project is in line with Fingal County Council’s Culture and Creativity Strategy through the strategic objective of ‘developing and providing space for culture and creativity in Fingal’ and the implementation action of ‘developing creative space for artists'.
