Roughly one third of Irish people live in the five big cities of Dublin, Cork, Limerick, Galway and Waterford, with another third estimated to be living in our towns. Ireland, as such, is transitioning from being once a very rural country to an urban-centred society.
The URBACT Secretariat invites you to complete a brief and anonymous survey by 19 November to understand the level of awareness, visibility and use of URBACT in different countries across Europe.
The results will be used to improve and reinforce the programme’s ongoing communication, networking, and capacity-building efforts.
Please spend up to 4 minutes to fill in the survey here (link is external).
The survey is available in 21 languages.
Deadline: 19 November
We thank you in advance for your help!
A transnational meeting hosted in Waterford took place on the 6th and 7th of November 2018. CREATIVE SPIRITS is a network of nine European cities, funded by the European Union in the frame of the URBACT III Programme. The nine partner cities have a common need to improve the implementation of their existing integrated urban strategies/action plans by including novel approaches linked to creative and cultural industries (CCI) – creative places, people, and businesses.
The meeting opened with a welcome speech by Mayor of Waterford City & County. Then Waterford Cultural Quarter Manager Katherine Collins set the context for the meeting, a Walkshop set the scene and introduced participants to a selection of creative activities in Waterford. A masterclass was delivered by URBACT Expert Yvan Corbat. On day 2 Creative Spirits Partners got the chance to showcase and share their own stories, participate in a Design Challenge Master Class, and meet local stakeholders.
A big thank you to Katherine Collins and Emma Haran for their hard work in making this visit a success. Please see the Creative Spirits webpage for more details: http://urbact.eu/creative-spirits
