Significant progress has been made on the Shannon Venue initiative, which aims to deliver a multi-functional Community Arts Centre in the heart of Shannon. The site has been secured and planning permission to build this iconic facility has already been committed.
The overall aim of the project is to: make Shannon a better place in which to live, work and do business; deliver a not-for-profit centre, developed and operated by the community, for the community and; create a multi-functional space for creative, civic and community activity.
The Shannon Venue needs your help to make this happen.
Shannon Chamber, for its part, is assisting in organising a series of workshops to encourage and assist local community groups to become involved in the project, and, at the same time, develop new skills such as website content management and creating videos for website.
The workshops will be run weekly, commencing Wednesday, 27th January until Tuesday, March 22nd covering a variety of themes.
FIRST WORKSHOP: COMMUNITY AND ARTS CREATIVE WORKSHOP, which will be delivered by Ian Oliver, and take place in Shannon Chamber’s boardroom – Unit B9, SkyCourt Shopping Centre, on Wednesday, 27th January at 6.30pm. We would welcome both individuals and members of local organisation involved in the arts to attend and participate in this workshop.
If you know of anyone involved in community/creative groups in Shannon Town, Bunratty, Sixmilebridge, Cratloe, or Newmarket-on-Fergus who would benefit from attending this FREE series of workshops, please also ask them to register their interest in participating in this development programme.
