Local Arts Europe

The Local Arts Europe strand of Culture Connects features 23 projects across many areas of arts practice, from contemporary dance and processional spectacle to sound art and video mapping. Each project is led by a Local Authority Arts Office or Ealaín na Gaeltachta working in cooperation with artists, arts organisations and community partners in their localities, as well as artistic partners based elsewhere in Europe.

Each partnership takes a unique approach. For example, The Future is Domestic in County Clare, is an artistically experimental exploration of art making in small rural communities. Voices from Shandon in Cork City commissions artistic works involving many participants and reaching wide audiences in an urban area.

Most of the Local Arts Europe partnership initiatives, such as the European Arts Ability Weekend in Wexford Arts Centre, investigate the basis for longer-term European projects and others, such as Awakening the Horsemen in Donegal, are ambitious new artistic works carried out by well established European arts partnerships.
