Cork is a city of remarkable creativity. The artistic vision and expression of skilled people who are passionate about their chosen craft provides the backbone of the identity of the local creative community and a pivotal asset in making Cork a great place to live in and to visit.
STAMP is a brand new clustering arrangement between four Cork-based art, design and craft organisations - benchspace, Cork Craft & Design, Sample Studios and Shandon Art Studios - brought together under a shared brand identity by Cork City Council via the Cult-CreaTE European project on cultural and creative tourism.
STAMP represents a collective ambition to effect positive change by empowering artists, makers and creators to claim their rightful place and truly make their mark on Cork’s future.
STAMP, and the shared purpose it mobilises among different organisations, will both support and showcase the value – generally and in economic terms – of creative thinking and artistic inspiration in helping to shape a vibrant and attractive city for locals and tourists alike to enjoy.
STAMP is about:
The STAMP brand goes public for the first time in mid-May 2022 with the delivery of a joint festival across a host of city centre locations offering a real taste of Cork’s creative offering in action
