ArtLinks is an exciting new professional resource for artists of all disciplines (inc. Visual Arts, Literature, Music, Film, Dance, Theatre, Art Management), which was recently established by the Local Authority Arts Departments of counties Carlow, Kilkenny, Waterford, Wicklow and Wexford, together with The Arts Council /An Comhairle Ealaoin, and local artists.
A product of extensive research into the needs of creative practitioners, Artlinks was launched on 26 Nov 2007, in the Parade Tower, Kilkenny by Dr Micheál Ó'Súilleab háin, Prof of Music at Univiversity College Limerick.
In keeping with its stated mission "to cultivate a culture of self-sufficiency (and collaboration) among creative practitioners", the organization offers a range of developmental services and support to all artists resident in the five counties, (aged 18 and over), in order to assist them in acquiring the necessary skills, knowledge and understanding to develop their work practice and generate an income from this practice, on a life-long basis, beyond their initial arts training.
