It’s going to be a weekend of art, architecture, design and events!
Cork city’s architecture and design festival, Design POP, returns to the streets of Cork this weekend, September 1st – 3rd.
Leesiders will get to enjoy architecture and design through a series of architectural pavilions, events, talks, exhibitions, and conversations.
This year’s festival’s themes are ‘Urban Regeneration’ and ‘Collaboration amongst the creative community’, and festival founder Amy McKeogh is excited to see the return of the festival.
Commenting on the festival, Mary mentions:
“The themes this year are to reflect on the current situation our urban areas are in while engaging the Creative Community for potential solutions. The Design POP team and I feel the festival is a great platform to have these meaningful conversations and discussions around these themes. The Design POP Festival 2023 HQ will be in Nano Nagle Place.”
This year’s programme is its biggest yet – with four pavilions in different locations around Cork city: Penrose Dock – Wilson Architecture, Penrose Wharf – Bablefís, Nano Nagle Plaza – James Grennan and Nano Nagle Place – Design POP.
Design POP will host over 28 events at the Nano Nagle Place, the Festival HQ. You can check out the full lineup of events over on their website here.
