2017 is the sixth year of Open House Limerick, with this years theme Architecture is Story.
Through what we create, we communicate: who we are, our intentions and our aspirations—are we creative, innovative, considerate, open? We capture our moment in time, our understanding of and investment in the environment we create. The shapes and materials we choose to construct and furnish our built environment tell the evolving stories of the people that live in it and live with it. Open House Limerick 2017 gives us the opportunity to learn from the stories told and the stories being constructed, as the community shapes the script of the stories to come.
Over the weekend October 6 to 8, there will be a programme of free events where people are encouraged to participate in exploring and learning about Limerick’s built environment through architect-guided and self-guided tours, walks, talks and exhibitions.
Open Photo: Open House Limerick are seeking expressions of interest for photography entries to participate in an online programme that explores this years theme Architecture is Story, capturing your story from within Limerick’s built environment. Applicants will feature across our social media platforms on an ongoing basis until Friday, 15 September 2017. A selection of short listed entries will feature in an exhibition during the Open House Limerick weekend, with the Open House Limerick Photography Prize to be awarded to one photographer at the festival launch. For further information email firstname.lastname@example.org.
