Waterford – Kilkenny – Wexford
Waterford, Kilkenny and Wexford have come together as a region to Bid for the title of European Capital of Culture in 2020. This title celebrates the richness and diversity of cultures throughout Europe and aims to bring the peoples of Europe closer together and to improve our mutual understanding.
Butler Gallery is a strong supporter of Three Sisters 2020 and is closely involved in the Bid.
Hosting European Capital of Culture in our region will be an amazing opportunity for the people living here to tell the rest of Europe about our culture and lifestyle while learning more about the culture of our neighbouring countries. Increased visitors to the three counties and the opportunity to grow our reputation internationally are just some of the benefits we will experience.
The decision will be made in July 2016 after the European judging panel visit the region, and the Bid Team are calling on everyone to come out and “Do YOUR Bit for the Bid” in the coming months in any way possible – tell us your ideas about the future of the region, organise a Three Sisters event, wear our badge or chat with us on social media.
