IDEATE Festival 05 – 06 JULY 2013

IDEATE is a multi-disciplinary mini-festival about making; it explores and celebrates craft, design and creativity through experimentation and collaboration and aims to build a community of practice actively engaged with innovation, technology and design.

IDEATE has been devised and produced by the Crafts Council of Ireland and The National Design and Craft Gallery to mark the 50th anniversary of the establishment of the Kilkenny Design Workshops, a visionary state-sponsored design agency set up in response to the 1961 Design in Ireland report.
