We present creative engagement opportunities that increase arts participation and make accessible, critical cultural experiences for our rural community.
We work with many local partner agencies across the county to reach the wide geographical span and diversity of our community. We aim to be both inclusive and accessible and working with our partners on ensuring inclusivity, is integral to our programming.
Join Skibbereen Community Choir for a weekly social, musical, choral experience.

Each year we work with commissioned artists, Skibbereen Chamber of Commerce and a local business to create an entry to the Skibbereen St. Patrick's Day parade. In 2019 we worked with artist Ana Ospina and fashion designer Alice Halliday along with local business Spearline to create The Great Uillinn Circus Project. In 2020 working again with Ana Ospina, Alice Halliday and Micheal Stephens, our partners are Field's SuperValu Skibbereen for the creation of Fairy-tale and Folklore.
