The Irish Architecture Foundation's July Reimagine Café provides an opportunity for people to come together to reimagine the future of retail in Clonmel town centre in a creative environment.

As part of the Clonmel Junction Arts Festival, this café will meet in the former Superquinn shopping centre. Together, we will ponder and discuss a question facing many towns around Ireland: what happens when the shops sell up?

Trade has been a primary function of most of our towns, yet with the prevalence of cars, out-of-town retail and online shopping, many places face a major crisis of vacancy and dereliction. Could a thoughtful refocus on lived-in, walkable urban communities create a new era for the Irish town?

Irish Architecture Foundation

About Established in 2005, the Irish Architecture Foundation (IAF) is an independent organisation dedicated to the promotion of architecture as culture. We encourage people to engage with their built environment, to inspire new ways of thinking about architecture. We truly believe architecture has the power to improve the way we live and how we think about our built environment. By bringing people together from diverse backgrounds and disciplines, we can create a more inclusive conversation that will inspire a better-built environment for everyone.
