Have your say.
Cork City Council has launched an online survey to get the public’s thoughts on what direction the city should take when it comes to arts and culture.
The survey, which will remain open until Monday, December 6th, will form the basis of a five-year plan for a “dynamic arts scene across all art forms that strives to cater to all corners of our diverse community as well as visitors to the city.”
A statement issued by the council today read: “The Arts Office of Cork City Council is developing a new strategy to guide its work over the next five years with a goal to ensure that arts and culture in Cork is the very best it can be.
“The development of the plan comes at a challenging time for the arts sector which is still absorbing the impact of the Covid19 pandemic.”
Speaking about the survey, Cork City Arts Officer, Michelle Carew said, “The arts are for everyone and everyone has an opinion. We want to hear as many diverse voices as possible in order to shape a future strategy for the arts and culture that is representative of the entire city and all who are from here”
In 2019 the European Commission’s Cultural and Creative Cities Monitor ranked Cork City second amongst 79 cities for its ‘cultural participation and attractiveness’.
