Open For Ideas Kildare County Council has announced the launch of OPEN…for ideas, a programme of review, research and consultation for Riverbank Arts Centre, Newbridge, Co Kildare.

OPEN…for ideas will engage stakeholders, artists, arts organisations and local communities. The aim of the research is to broaden access to, and develop new and existing audiences in, all art forms through an inclusive programme relevant to the needs of the local community whilst remaining sensitive to contemporary art practice.

A comprehensive programme which will include, arts-based interventions, site-specific performances and once off events, will be used to gather views of individuals and organizations around the county with particular expertise or interest in the arts as part of the consultation process.

The consultation will also include formal questionnaires, focus groups, interviews and an ideas wall in Riverbank Arts Centre. A full schedule of events will be announced shortly.
