Following the successful ‘BRAND LISMORE’ competition 2013 in which Lismore’s visual identity was chosen for the the towns marketing and promotional needs, the Lismore Marketing Committee (LMC) set out to initiate a pilot venture for the revitalisation of the towns Main Street. This would be to partner creative artisans with property owners who had vacant spaces for use. LISMORE CRAFT COLLECTIVE is the first iteration of this partnership and the first step in the Main Street Regeneration Initiative to bring life back to the heart of the town for locals and visitors alike.
The collective is made up five creative artisans from the region, JOAN CASEY – Mosaic & Felt Making, LEN CANTON – Leatherwork, JANE JERMYN – Ceramics, MORITZ SCHURMANN – Jewellery Design, and EUGENE YOUNG – Iona Crystal, each of whom will be displaying and selling their work, some which will be made while in residency. The new outlet is open to the public on the towns Main Street from Saturday 19th July.
LMC have plans to extend the initiative in the near future. For more information contact Mealla Fahey 058 54975 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
