About

Greywood Arts is a welcoming place where meaningful personal and group experiences are constructed. We are passionate about creative process, connection and growth. What began as a multidisciplinary artist residency in 2017 has grown to offer participatory educational and cultural events. In 2018, Greywood Arts CLG, a not-for-profit structure, was created to manage community and educational programmes and events. By supporting the practices of professional artists, as well as developing opportunities for for self-expression and social engagement in a rural setting, Greywood Arts helps shape the cultural landscape of East Cork.

What We Do:


Our Goals:

  • to provide low-cost and no-cost space to artists.
  • to support the creative processes of performing artists, visual artists, writers, filmmakers, musicians, arts scholars and other creatives.
  • to provide a site for education, dialogue and engagement.
  • to increase our community’s access to the arts.
  • to offer a warm welcome and make all visitors feel comfortable and supported as they explore, imagine, invent and reflect.

We Value:

  • Being articulate and transparent about process. A willingness to embrace not-knowing and spontaneity, as well as working with structure, strategy, and parameters.
  • Work that is compelling, vital, and timely. We are a place to explore the methods and media that best express those ideas.
  • Risk taking. Pushing boundaries, play, experimentation. Learning from failure as much as success.
  • Collaborative and interdisciplinary work. Honing collaborative skills like communication, negotiation, and problem solving. Magic happens in the exchange of ideas and the intersection of media.
  • Work at all stages. Supporting new work and work that reworks ideas.
  • Inclusivity.
