Studio Weave were commissioned to deliver engagement services culminating in a documentary publication as part of the ‘My Carlow’ initiative; which is intended to begin involving the existing residents of Carlow in the development of a community plan. Carlow sits on the River Barrow around an hour from Dublin; and over recent years the expansion of a handful of higher education facilities, and an internationally recognised art centre are contributing to steady growth of the town.

Our engagement programme and publication sought to invite and present a range of Carlow’s residents perceptions of their town and its growth; and to encourage the local community to communicate their perspectives as part of building interest and investment in the forthcoming evolution of their surroundings.
