“Change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other time. We are the ones we've been waiting for. We are the change that we seek.”
“We have a once-in-a-generation opportunity to create a civic space that we can be proud of as a national civic space,” said Cuffe. “We’ve got to get it right.”
According to the Art's Council a Decade of Commemorations with Celtcia is not a funding priority. It also highlights that Visual materials supplied by Celtcia are not architectural in their content or ambition this is despite the content appearing in an Advertising Architecture exhibition at an international venue. Has the Arts Council ever supported architecture with Celtic or Irish Symbols? I guess we will never find out...
Celtic or Irish symbols that make Indigenous Irish Architecture are not a priority for the Art's Council with it's engaging architecture program. Ireland needs to come out of it's medieval obsession with hope and a Celtic Revival might just be the answer...
Since its revival in the 1850s, the Celtic cross has been used extensively as grave markers. This was a departure from medieval usage, when the symbol was more typically used for a public monument.
Celtcia are proud to announce a funding application with the Arts Council for engaging architecture:
The purpose of the scheme is to support ambitious, innovative and creative, high-quality initiatives that specifically aim to enhance and extend the public’s experience of and engagement with architecture. The Engaging with Architecture Scheme was developed in response to both the Government Policy on Architecture 2009-2015 Towards a Sustainable Future: Delivering Quality within the Built Environment and the Arts Councils research into Public Engagement with Architecture (2009).
