Description

It Takes a Village - Workshop 02


Oranmore Arts Festival together with Galway 2020 as part of the 'Small Towns Big Ideas' initiative presents

'It Takes a Village'

This is a community participation project providing skills and discussion on the design of the village of Oranmore. It provides an opportunity to explore and learn about urban design using a familiar local space to virtually design your own Village.

Participants will be invited to attend a lecture by an urban design specialist in the morning, with some tea and coffee for a short discussion thereafter. This will be followed by a virtual introduction to the site/ local space and some further urban design theory. Following lunch participants will learn 3d computer modelling skills and will be provided with a 3d model of an existing space in the Village allowing for their own interpretations and ideas to be applied.

For our second workshop, taking place on 12th January 2019, we are delighted to welcome our guest speaker Simon Wall. Simon has been Town Architect to the multiple award-winning Town of Westport, Co. Mayo for almost two decades; he is responsible for the built environment as part of the towns Management team. During this time Westport has radically transformed from a coastal town in decline, to a vibrant desirable destination, and one of Ireland’s most successful towns having been assessed by the Irish Times in 2012 to be ‘The best place to live in Ireland’.

If they wish to do so participants are invited to develop thier ideas following the workshop with our support and exhibit as part of the Oranmore Arts Festival in May 2019.

We have a limited number of computers available for use by participants. We will follow with an email after registration asking if you require a computer or if you have a laptop and mouse that you can bring along with you.

We are delighted to present this event and look forward to developing some exciting ideas for Oranmore Village!

Tea/Coffee and Lunch will be provided at the venue.
