Our aims are to foster outstanding and astounding multi-disciplinary research, experimentation and art production to create opportunities for both local, national and international artists working in the areas of live art and performance art, contemporary dance, participatory practice and artist film and video.
We wish to create opportunities for local artists to help foster a committed and connected local art scene.
To develop the contribution of contemporary live art, performance to the social and economic development of rural North Tipperary
To create new opportunities for audiences to participate in cutting edge contemporary art
To build a highly regarded both locally and internationally centre of excellence in the Arts in North Tipperary and the wider area.
Ensuring that all our activities are sustainable and tread lightly on the Earth
Fostering an ArK for wildlife and actively rewilding and encouraging artists to engage with the land and landscape
We have an inclusive policy around being aware of intersections of class, able normativity, BIPOC and gender and sexuality, particularly QTIPOC – Queer, Transgender and Intersex People of Colour, and including individuals, groups and mothers of younger children.
We are located in the lush West Midlands in North Tipperary very close to Portumna and Borrisokane.
