Posted: 17 February, 2019

Mayo County Council Arts Service have announced details of their forthcoming Kilkenny Collective for Arts Talent (KCAT) Residency.

The residency will see five artists from the Callen based artists’s collective spend a week facilitating visual arts workshops with groups and artists with disabilities throughout Mayo from 19th to 22nd March 2019.

Groups participating in the residency include Carrowbeg Artists Collective in Westport, Mayo Artsquad in Castlebar, Luisne Art Group in Ballinrobe and Western Care Visual Arts Group in Erris.

KCAT is a multi-disciplinary arts centre dedicated to the fostering and nurturing of creative ambition and professional development in the arts. Founded in 1999, the centre has continued to grow, develop and evolve according to demand and need. The ethos of the work at KCAT is firmly committed to realising the artistic ambition of the individual artists at the centre, a flexible approach to their development, access and inclusion for all and sustainability and continuity.

Artists from KCAT have a long history of exhibiting work nationally and internationally and will spend four days facilitating and sharing their skills and knowledge with local groups in Mayo. For further information go to www.kcat.ie.

The residency project is one of a number of projects that have been made possible with funding from Creative Ireland, Mayo.
