Wexford County Council’s Environment & Climate Action Team & Culture Team supported by Creative Ireland, Sustainable Enniscorthy Committee, the 3 Counties Energy Agency, the Per cent for Art Programme and Wexford Arts Centre, is commissioning a public art programme to take place in Enniscorthy Co. Wexford.
This public art programme will address the overarching theme of Decarbonisation and will have public art outcomes. The aim of this public art commission is to raise awareness and encourage behaviour change amongst local communities in this area, in real and tangible ways through creative processes.
The commission will involve a limited invitation to artists in November 2021 to submit a brief to engage with communities of place or interest in relation to the themes of Decarbonisation identified, that are of relevance to the context of Enniscorthy town. The commission will focus on Enniscorthy town, which has been nominated by Wexford County Council as Wexford’s pilot Decarbonisation Zone (DZ). The project will run from January 2021 over a 12-month period.
