I took part in a projection project in Limerick City on Saturday night. The purpose was to engage with the situation of vacant premises within the city, as a result of the unfavourable economic climate. It was organised and curated by Gillian Snowdon and a looped slide show of artists work was projected for a number hours on O'Connell street and Patrick street. A good number of artists were on show including my peers and influences, Des MacMahon and Stacey Grant pictured below in images 3 & 4.
Quite frankly, I don't think there should be as many vacant premises in the city centre. The Council really aren't doing enough to encourage businesses to occupy and compete in the district. In my opinion the city needs lower rates or give rate free periods and practice better planning in order to survive and thrieve. Bam.
