Night-Time Economy Forum Announced | The Arts Council

The Arts Council has announced a Night-Time Economy Forum, taking place from 2pm on Tuesday 17th January in the National Gallery of Ireland.

The forum’s programme has been designed to bring together a range of international, national and local perspectives on emerging trends and initiatives in relation to the development of the arts and the night-time economy. The forum will aim to encourage new initiatives, new partnerships, new thinking and specific actions to support the role of the arts in creating a vibrant night-time economy.

Minister Catherine Martin, Department of Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport and Media, speaking in advance of the forum said: ‘The Night-Time Economy Task Force has set forth an ambitious programme that is working to shape and change our cities and towns at night. This forum shines a spotlight on the potential ways in which we can make this happen. I’m looking forward to seeing new and innovative solutions to some of the challenges facing the Night-Economy and some new and interesting partnerships coming out of this event.’

Prof. Kevin Rafter, Chair of the Arts Council, said: ‘As the developing agency for the arts in Ireland, the Arts Council is pleased to support initiatives such as the Night-Time Economy Forum that seek to expand opportunities for artists and audience.’

Welcoming the event, Director of the Arts Council Maureen Kennelly said: ‘This forum is an opportunity for us to learn from each other and to work together to create a shared night-time economy that is diverse and inclusive of everyone.’

The keynote speaker is Professor Terry Stevens, who will provide insights and practical examples of how urban centres are re-designing the use of cultural spaces and the public realm to re-invigorate the night time economy.

Robbie Kitt will introduce the forum, and other speakers include Adrienne Rodgers, the Director of Services of Community, Culture and Placemaking in Cork and Mirik Milan, former Night Mayor, Amsterdam and CEO of Vibe Lab – an organisation set up to support creative communities and help the world better understand the value of vibrant life at night. The programme will also feature Ruth McGowan, CEO of Dublin Fringe Festival and the actor/comedian Saoirse Smith.

The event is free for all and will also be streamed on the Arts Council YouTube channels. Tickets are available at link here.
