Festivals & Events of all shapes and sizes are held in towns and villages across the county and play an important role in attracting thousands of visitors to Cork annually, which in turn generates a substantial economic return for the Cork region. Cork County Council, as a significant financial contributor to festivals/events throughout the county, are organising this Workshop (in conjunction with AOIFE), with a view to helping support festivals to maximise their growth potential and gain valuable industry insights.
Do you have a ruined historic building in need of some attention?
Is your community group involved in maintaining a local historic graveyard, perhaps one that contains the ruin of a historic church?
If yes, then you will be interested to hear that The Historic Monuments Advisory Committee (HMAC) has organized a series of training workshops on the Conservation of Historic Ruins.
Our next training course for 2018 'An Introduction to Oral History – the Life Cycle Approach' takes place on Saturday 20th October 2018 in Cork Folklore Project, Cork City.
