Sarah Searson researched, wrote and edited the County Strategy working closely with Jenny Sherwin, Arts Officer. The aim of Wicklow Arts Strategy was to provided a foundation for arts and cultural provision in the County. The Five Key Areas of Focus were; The Creative Practitioner, Infrastructure, Youth Arts, Arts in the Public Realm, Public Art.
The arts is one the core services of the Council and the arts service can enhance the work of many of Wicklow County Council’s departments and wider function, in areas such as architecture, urban and rural planning, community development and enterprise.
Wicklow’s Local Authority Arts Service, as outlined in the strategy, has the potential to develop and cement fruitful partnerships both internally and externally with other stakeholders of local and national importance.
