Nimble Spaces is a creative and citizens-led approach to how society can develop new patterns of housing. The project promotes an arts-led participatory design process that enables active citizenship and participation to meet the needs of many different citizens.

This new approach to social housing encourages social inclusion and mutual support aided by the smart design. The Nimble Spaces project includes a housing pilot developed with Camphill in Callan, Co.Kilkenny while making links to other social/co-housing projects around the world.
