Capacity and Influence

The realisation of our strategic priorities relies on the enthusiasm and capacity of Cork City Council Arts Office, the arts and culture sector and the Council itself.

Over the period of this strategy we will invest in people, knowledge and advocacy to encourage and enable the pursuit of our shared ambitions for arts and culture in Cork City. We look forward to enhancing awareness of arts and culture in Cork and to advancing evidence-based understanding of its value in people’s lives and to the city.

In that regard, recognising the devastating impact of the global health crisis on the arts and culture sector, in the early years of this strategy specifically, we will support the sector in processes of recovery and renewal.

The sustainability of arts and culture is vital to the life and vibrancy of the city.
