Reimagining Enniscorthy is public art & community decarbonisation project, taking place in 2022-23 throughout Enniscorthy town. It’s a collaborative, place-based response to the climate crisis, and a creative exploration of Enniscorthy as Wexford’s pilot Decarbonisation Zone.
This public art project is jointly funded through the Wexford County Council’s Per Cent for Art Scheme and Creative Ireland Programme.
Helping to create a local ecology network for people-led climate action, connecting neighbours and community groups in Enniscorthy with each other, and with local food producers, environmental groups, artists and craftspeople, so a conversation can be started about food - where it comes from, how we grow it, and the environmental impact.
Currently part taking in the community planting:
Slí na Slaine/Andy Doyle, Bridgemeadow, Pairc na gCon, and the County Wexford Community Workshop's Residential Community Designated Centres.
