WICK­LOW Arts Of­fice is call­ing on arts and cul­tural or­gan­i­sa­tions around the county to get in­volved with this year’s Cul­ture Night.

2017 marks Wick­low’s eight year of par­tic­i­pa­tion in the na­tional event, which takes place in Septem­ber and fea­tures a broad spec­trum of events which are free to the pub­lic.

Or­gan­is­ers would like to hear from all sorts of in­di­vid­u­als and groups who are in­ter­ested in host­ing events, in­clud­ing artists, per­form­ing groups, gal­leries, museums, sports clubs, li­braries, arts cen­tres, craft work­ers, stu­dios, the­atres, broad­cast­ers, schools, com­mu­nity groups, trans­port com­pa­nies, uni­ver­si­ties, shops and more.

‘ This year we are also in­ter­ested in work­ing with com­mer­cial com­pa­nies who feel they may have some­thing to add to Cul­ture Night.

‘We are also keen to have or­gan­i­sa­tions pro­mote and sup­port events in their area so please feel free to co­or­di­nate with other or­gan­i­sa­tions in your area to pro­vide the best events pos­si­ble,’ said Lian Bell, Wick­low Cul­ture Night Co­or­di­na­tor.

‘If you, your group or venue is in­ter­ested in par­tic­i­pat­ing, we would love to hear from you in Ti­na­hely. and talk about your pro­posal.

‘All Cul­ture Night events must be free of charge and pri­or­ity will be given to those events hap­pen­ing ex­clu­sively for Cul­ture Night.

‘We will also be pay­ing par­tic­u­lar at­ten­tion to the sched­ul­ing of the events to try and avoid over­lap that can re­duce au­di­ences for all, so we would ask you to be flex­i­ble in your pro­posed event time,’ added
