Fresh Street#3 - Programme Foreword: President of Ireland

 
As President of Ireland it gives me great pleasure to welcome you to FRESH STREET#3.

Over the coming days, this important international seminar will bring together artists, programmers, researchers, pedagogues, journalists and policymakers from all over the globe, in celebration of street arts, in all their variety.

Surely this is a time when we need to celebrate the public world, public spaces, and public performance. A privatised world is a lesser world.

The people of Ireland take great pride in their arts and culture, and ours is a society where the work of the imagination is valued by members of the public and where the fruits of the imagination are appreciated and enjoyed. As a people, we are acutely aware of our cultural heritage, which is the bedrock of our identity, connecting us to our shared past and pointing the way to our future full of possibilities.
