This week we went to Wexford Arts Centre to find out about their sustainability strategy and how they implement being sustainable into their every day lives.
About Wexford Arts Centre:
- Based in the historic Cornmarket building was established in 1974. It is the only multi arts centre in Wexford delivering a vibrant arts programme of exhibitions, performances, and creative education workshops for all in the community.
- Operating in partnership with the Irish Youth Foundation and supporting partners YouthAction Northern Ireland, the Fund invests in community groups that are orientated towards young people, with this year’s theme centered around empowering young people through learning, inclusion, and sustainable development.
- The Arts Centre has been providing art and entertainment for native and visitor alike ever since.
- Their supporters include main funding from Arts Council Ireland, Wexford County Council, Pobal and Wexford Local Development.
- The Wexford Arts Centre has an expansive art programme running throughout the year including visual arts by local and touring artists in addition to a regular programme of theatre, dance, music and workshops for adults and children of all ages. The centre is also home to D’Lush café – a jewel in Wexford’s crown – serving the best quality local ingredients
- We decided to pop down to the venue and talk to CEO of Wexford Arts Centre Elizabeth Whyte. Elizabeth has held the position of CEO since 2006 so we asked her about sustainability in general and if, as the year’s go on the Arts Centre is becoming more and more sustainable.
