Róisín de Buitléar will speak on the Value of Advocacy
Understanding the impact arts and culture plays on the wider society is critical to shaping and developing arguments in favour of sustained public investment in arts and culture.
In Waterford there has never been a more important time to stimulate debate, work in partnership with the community and share information, so that the benefits of its glassmaking culture are discussed as a mainstream issue.
Driving the development of evidence and research in Waterford of the significance and validity of its glassmaking culture, has been to the fore of Róisín de Buitléar’s practice for the past twenty five years. This presentation will examine how working with local communities, city councils, the Design and Crafts Council and national and international museums have created opportunites for engagement, experience and retelling of histories to advocate for evaluating and driving change for a new future for glass in Ireland Using a bottom up approach, she will share how society, education, economy, and health can be impacted through valueing current assets.
