Frankie Whelehan, Chair of the Triskel Board, said, “Triskel Arts Centre is a dynamic multi-disciplinary Arts Centre servicing both the Arts Community and the broader general public for many years. To guide Triskel Arts Centre, a Board of Directors that share an ambitious development programme is essential. To this end, we are delighted to announce that Deirdre Waldron of Fuzion Communications has joined as a Director. We look forward to embracing Deirdre’s energy and experiences to further our artistic goals.”
Deirdre, who specialises in Strategic Communications and Reputation Management, said, “Cultural activities play such a vital role in the overall Cork proposition and it is so important that these institutions are supported. Triskel is such a major part of Cork’s DNA and I was honoured to be invited onto the Board. It’s such a vibrant and vital cultural hub for the city and I look forward to working with the Board and the management team on many exciting projects going into the future.”
In 2016 Deirdre was appointed President of Network Ireland, an organisation driving the personal and professional development of women. She is also on the board of Cork Chamber and the National Youth Orchestra of Ireland.
Triskel Arts Centre was founded in 1978 and has served as Cork’s Contemporary Arts Centre since then. Triskel has, over the years, developed its reputation as an eclectic cultural venue, and has featured the work of, or in some cases launched the careers of, several generations of artists, musicians, writers and composers.
