‘Let’s Stay Together’: Fingal Arts Office connecting people and ideas during Covid-19

The Fingal Arts Office is dedicated to delivering our programme of work and remaining available to our stakeholders and communities

Over the coming weeks Fingal Arts Office as part of its “Let’s Stay Together campaign” will present several projects online through its digital media platforms including ongoing clinics with Artists and Communities, alongside a schedule of live and recorded elements announced weekly.

The Programme Launch Event will take place on Thursday, April 23 from 11am to 12pm, to be streamed through our social media platforms.

Fingal Arts will be participating with the Covid-19 Community Support Helpline on a 7-days-a-week basis, while continuing to work on our objectives as set out in our recently published Arts Strategy 2019 – 2025: Connecting People and Ideas and Bringing Fingal to Life Through the Arts.

The Fingal Arts Office is dedicated to delivering our programme of work and remaining available to our stakeholders and communities. It hopes for a full return as soon as it is safe to do so, as we understand that art remains a vital part of people’s lives.

Mayor of Fingal Cllr Eoghan O’Brien said: “This initiative from the Fingal Arts Office is an innovative way to bring people together through the arts.

“The Arts Office is contributing to the wellbeing of families, individuals and communities by showing that creativity can strengthen community in Fingal.”

Fingal County Council Director of Housing & Community Margaret Geraghty warmly welcomed this initiative saying that: “Now more than ever it is important to support our artists, and in turn our artists can continue to bring positivity and hope to our communities.”

We hope you will join us so that we can stay together during Covid-19.

Let’s Stay Together while we’re apart.
