Rush is one of seven towns selected to receive the transfer of good practices which were learned by the lead city of Cork on the EU URBACT Playful Paradigm network to develop play and placemaking actions.
This URBACT Transfer Initiative offers the opportunity through meetings, forums, observations, trial and error to develop a playful culture in towns and cities across Ireland that can be adapted, changed and used to inform and influence locally relevant aspects, both in policy and practice. From Playful Placemaking, to Play in Libraries, Pop Up Play Events, Play-filled Festivals and Play Streets, the Playful Paradigm offers an opportunity to bring spontaneous and uninhibited play to places and spaces in our town and city centres.
The transfer network will run from June 2021 to December 2022 and the first meeting of those involved in the Rush project will take place on June 21 with Fingal County Council looking to use the lessons learned from participation in this network in Rush initially and then incorporating them into place-making approaches county wide.
