Cork and Coventry: Connecting communities through culture
In February, the Glucksman welcomed a delegation from Culture Coventry Trust to learn about our work with diverse communities in Cork city, and in particular playful ways of engaging audiences in artistic and civic actions. The delegation visited artist services organisations as well as galleries and museums throughout the city and attended the official flag raising of our In Colour project with the Deputy Lord Mayor of Cork and the Lord Mayor of Coventry.
This visit and the development of a collaborative partnership between the Glucksman and the Herbert, Coventry is generously supported by the British Embassy in Ireland with further cultural engagement facilitated by the British Council. In March, a delegation from the Glucksman will visit Coventry and plans are already in development for cultural collaborations that will connect people and projects under the twin city programme.
