Kilkenny County Council Public Arts Programme.

Deadline: 5 Sep 2024

Kilkenny County Council is embarking on a new phase in its Public Arts Programme. The focus of these commissions will be on collaborations with communities in County Kilkenny. We are selecting up to five artist-led projects which should seek to challenge, engage and innovate, through meaningful dialogue, research and engagement with communities. Kilkenny County Council is now accepting proposals from any recognised art form, from individuals or teams, who seek to devise and complete new work, developed in a collaborative setting. We are seeking compelling, ambitious proposals from artists which meet, challenge and expand ideas of public art.

Who can apply for the commissions?

Irish, EU, UK and non-EU artists.
