A Cultural Quarter for Waterford, Ireland

TFCC is pleased to be back in Waterford, where we have been commissioned with Karan Thompson Consulting to develop a clear vision and plan for a new cultural quarter. Since being shortlisted for European Capital of Culture, partners in Waterford have been working hard to develop a culture-led approach to planning and development. A key intervention will be a new cultural quarter on and around O'Connell Street to the west of the city centre. This will connect existing cultural infrastructure and position the minority communities living in the neighbourhood as vital contributors to the cultural life of the city.

TFCC's role is to provide international best practice examples and support Karan Thompson's detailed mapping and engagement work to ensure the plan is distinctive, innovative and sustainable.
