Waterford City & County Council is developing a new Art Plan for 2016 – 2021 and is seeking Tenders from suitably experienced consultants to work closely with the County’s Arts Officers.Pic

Waterford City Council and Waterford County Council amalgamated as a single authority Waterford City & County Council in June 2014. This will be the first Arts Strategy for the new authority and as such it will address this new artistic landscape . It will articulate how working in this new context, areas will be prioritised for investment over the period of the plan and will take a policy approach which is driven by strategic objectives.

It will identify how to support the growth and continuing development of the arts,  not only encompassing Waterford’s  needs and ambitions, but also placing  them within the overall context of the South East region and the national strategy for the Arts. It will look at how the economic environment of recent times has necessitated working collaboratively to maximise resources.

The deadline for receipt of completed Tenders is Monday August 31st at 4pm.

A copy of the Tender document can be made available by emailing  morgan@waterfordcouncil.ie .
