THOMOND Park Stadium hosted a Citizen Brainstorming Session on Tuesday, July 21 as part of efforts to secure 2020 European Capital of Culture designation for Limerick.

Tuesday’s session was the latest in a series of events, conversations and activities taking place across the region, which the Limerick 2020 team says will inform the set of values and priorities that will underpin Limerick’s bid.

“The European Capital of Culture participation programme provides an ideal opportunity for people of all ages and from all backgrounds to have their say on Limerick 2020,” commented Sheila Deegan, arts and culture officer, Limerick 2020 Bid Team.

“Limerick 2020 needs everybody’s ideas, passion and enthusiasm to help secure the 2020 European Capital of Culture designation for Limerick.”

A series of Kitchen Table Conversations featuring informal discussions to help feed into Limerick’s bid across the region have taken place during the past fortnight in Askeaton, Rathkeale, Adare, the University of Limerick, Limerick City and Ennis.
