Next Summer, The Ark will be presenting a brand-new festival created for children – by children! To kick-start the process, we need children to help us come up with a name for the festival.
The Ark Children's Council is back and this time we’re bigger than ever with a whopping 35 young people all ready for a fun year working with me and the rest of The Ark team.
The Ark is delighted to invite professional artists from the fields of dance, theatre or music to apply for our second 12 month Early Years Artist Residency, running from May 2019-April 2020
We are looking for three Ireland-based artists for the first of our PUSH+ residential labs for Artists taking place in Edinburgh in January 2019.
We’re excited to tell you about some changes and improvements that we’ve been putting in place, thanks to capital funding from the Department of Culture, Heritage and the Gaeltacht, match funded by Temple Bar Cultural Trust.
We may not have any events here at The Ark this Culture Night, but there's still so much to do for children and families.
We are delighted to share the news that The Ark will be the recipient of funding for two Creative Europe projects that we are part of, that will be starting later this year. Grants from this highly prestigious fund are sought by artists and organisations across Europe, so we are hugely proud and excited to receive funding for not one but two projects at the same time, the first time that an Irish arts organisation has achieved this from Creative Europe.
The Ark's Early Years Artist in Residence gives us an update on how her year is going as she reflects on the workshops she has created and delivered and the people that are helping her to develop this work.
We are delighted to announce the appointment of Brian Lavery as Chair of The Ark.
Musician and artist Jackie Maguire reflects upon her experience working with The Ark and collaborating on our 'Beats and Rhythms from Around the World' programme.
