Open Circle Community Arts

Open Circle Community Arts Collective is a community-based, for-impact organisation whose mission is to inspire interest and maximum participation in the arts both locally and nationally for Kilkenny women. We are committed to offering programs that are characterized by quality arts learning experiences and inspiring arts participatory engagements.

Open Circle Community Arts was founded in 2013 and is supported by Kilkenny Arts Office and Kilkenny & Carlow ETB. It is a small community arts organisation based in Kilkenny City which seeks to make the arts available and accessible to woman of all ages and from all walks of life. The heart of the project is our community art space the Open Circle Art House.

The Open Circle Art House is a social space for learning and creating communally. It aims to provide an outlet for creative community involvement, for women in Kilkenny.  We offer an 18 month program in the visual arts, facilitated by our talented and experienced panel of local artists with funding and support from  Kilkenny Arts Office and the Carlow and Kilkenny ETB.  There is a call out each year in October for applications  through our mailing list, Facebook page, local libraries and local media, for the following years program which starts in January.
