Why Galway creatives support the NCFA recovery plan for the arts
THE ARTS are the lifeblood of Galway city, they are vital to our reputation; they attract tourists and new residents; they are an essential part of many businesses in the city centre; and the arts are a key contributor to the Galway economy, bringing in millions each year.
Without the arts, Galway is diminished - socially, economically, and in terms of the joy they bring individuals and communities.“Galway wouldn’t be galway it is if it weren’t for the arts,” says theatre maker and singer Orlagh De Bhaldraithe, “and it’s artists, engineers, riggers, lightening designers, makers, producers of all the incredible art that happens in Galway on a year round basis. The arts should be one of the central components around which we rebuild.”
