Can you imagine Waterford in 40 years’ time?


Garter Lane Arts Centre with the support of Creative Ireland have invited 5 schools to participate in this year’s project Waterford 40 Years from Now

Exploring, developing and daydreaming about the city they live in, second level students from; De La Salle College, Waterpark, Newtown School and St. Angela’s will all take part in this year’s educational project. With the support of Creative Ireland, we aim to develop new ways to highlight the impact of creativity for all participating students.

Each student will design and develop a 2D or 3D work based on how they imagine Waterford in 40 Years from now. Working alongside professional artist Jennie O’Neill students will be supported throughout this process. The voice of the students is at the centre of this project. All works created will be displayed in Garter Lane Arts Centres main gallery space from January 14th – 18th.

“A city’s identity is moulded on both its past and present”

Waterford 40 Years from Now is an inclusive project that gets many stakeholders involved, from the students, teachers, and artists, those living in and around The Cultural Quarter, the staff and patrons of Garter Lane Arts Centre, Creative Waterford, local businesses, and The Cultural Quarter representatives.

Waterford 40 Years from Now will be formally opened at 7.30pm on Wednesday, January 15th. Opening hours: 11am-5.30pm Tuesday – Saturday and during evening performances. Admission free. All welcome.
