Culture Connects is a creative placemaking study that investigates the connection between visual artists and place. Based across two places, Culture Connects explores the opportunities for artist support programmes, cross border mobility, shared workspace, and residencies.

The study is funded by the Shared Island project funded by The Shared Island Local Authority Development Funding Scheme. Developed in partnership with Galway City Council and Armagh City, Banbridge and Craigavon Borough Council, facilitated by Galway Culture Company in collaboration with Galway Arts Centre, Atlantic Technological University and Southern Regional College.
