Grass Roots | Muine Bheag Arts
30 July - 29 August 2021
Grass Roots is the first public programme initiated by artist-run organisation Muine Bheag Arts. Grass Roots refers to the act of self-organising, nurturing ideas and facilitating dialogue on a local level. The programme embeds itself deep into the soil of the community, cultivating growth from the roots up.
Grass Roots is situated in public spaces throughout Muine Bheag, Co. Carlow. Sprawling across the fields, river banks and buildings it utilises the town’s infrastructure to host a temporary network of offsite projects, public interventions and events.
The programme includes contributions from Bog Cottage, Saidhbhín Gibson, Carl Giffney, Mary O’Leary, Nollaig Molloy, Rory Mullen, Cliodhna Timoney and Katie Watchorn. The artists were invited to respond to Muine Bheag and the rural context as a space of artistic production. The works examine and explores notions of the land, craft, industry, community and place.
Muine Bheag Arts is an artist-run organisation based in Co. Carlow, which hosts a programme of exhibitions, workshops and events in the public realm.
Our aim is to promote contemporary art in a rural context, to collaborate with the local community through multi-disciplinary arts activities and to support emerging and established artists through commissioning, producing and developing new works of art.
