IRO organising an Open Days 2009 seminar and cultural event with thanks to Clare County Council and Tourism Ireland
As part of the EU's Week of Regions and Cities ('Open Days'), the Irish Regions Office along with counterparts from eight other Brussels-based regional offices is organising a seminar entitled 'In search of a Framework for Cooperation in the Atlantic Area' on 7 October. This event will examine and look at means of progressing issues of mutual concern among the nations and regions surrounding this maritime space - Ireland, Northern Ireland, Scotland, Wales, South-West England, Normandy, Brittany, Galicia and Norte Portugal - through a coordianted marine spatial planning focus. A particular emphasis will be placed on the Atlantic Area Interreg programme as a means of formalising cooperation.
Later that evening, five of these partners will be hosting a 'Celtic Connections' cultural concert. IRO is delighted to have secured full Irish involvement thanks to the input of Clare County Council (from whose ranks the traditional music group Re-Seisiun are drawn) and the support of Tourism Ireland. Other performers include Welsh band Taran, the BellonMaceiras quinteto from Galicia, and Breabach from Scotland.
The concert will take place at the La Tentation venue in Central Brussels and is open to the general public. Admission is free but prior registration and confirmation is required via EUevents@wales.gsi.gov.uk.
