Culture Night at The Old Barracks, Caherciveen

Updated: Nov 29, 2018

On the 21st September, as part of Culture Night, lighthouse keepers, fishermen, marine biologists, historians and sailors shared their tales of the sea in a special event that celebrated the Iveragh Peninsula’s rich marine heritage. Held in The Old Barracks, Caherciveen as part of CoDesRes’s year long Storybank project, the audience were treated to unique perspectives of the sea and were able to dig deeper in the question and answer session.

The evening also launched Sea Synergy’s exciting new project; SS Net Reuse, supported by Bord Iascaigh Mhara. This nine-month project will work with local communities to re-imagine a new story for old nets. The solution to the problem of marine plastic waste could be in the mind of a 12 year-old or an 80 year old living locally; using design-thinking, the project will develop four prototypes of products that create value in old nets and marine plastic waste, which can be evaluated for market readiness and then explored for production and distribution by local micro-businesses.
