Our Autumn programme of public art will have workshops for adults, families and teens alongside a residency project by Swedish artist Robert Hais in October 2019.
A monthly meet-up for artists and creatives working in any discipline to have a relaxed chat over a cup of tea. No need to consider yourself a professional – passion and curiosity are your the only pre-requisites. Check the events page for our next meet-up.
The Arboreal Book Club
The brainchild of visual artist Carol Anne Connolly, the Arboreal Bookclub meets every second month to discuss books related to trees, nature, & woodland. Check the events page for the next meeting.
May Sunday Festival, 1-4 May, 2020
2018 marked the return of May Sunday festivities after an 18-year hiatus. Through the Creative Killeagh project, Greywood Arts facilitated the revival of old traditions and the making of new ones in this village-wide festival centred around Glenbower Wood.
Cracks & Whispers April 2019
An intergenerational dance and photography project with visiting choreographer Isabel Bernhard and photographer Mario Soose culminating in a performance and exhibition during the May Sunday Festival.
Forest School Spring 2019
Performing artist Noelle O’Regan & sculptor Rob Ireson worked with 12 young people in Glenbower Wood. Over six sessions, the team used Forest School methodologies for hands on learning and creative exploration.
Creative Killeagh 2017-2018
Greywood Arts facilitated four community projects, two artist-in-the-community residencies, and many one-off events between October 2017 and the May Sunday festival in 2018. You can learn more about the practices, process and events on at www.creativekilleagh.ie. This project was made possible by funds from Cork County Council’s Creative Communities scheme, the Amenity Fund, and Creative Ireland.
