Ballydehob Micro Mural Project 2022
Since 2007, the Ballydehob Jazz Festival has grown in stature to become a multidisciplinary festival of music, dance and street spectacle with a major focus on arts participation in the community.
Developing further on the Ballydehob Jazz Festival 2021 Village Mural Project, artist Anthony Ruby’s mural The Third Wave, the BJF has commissioned Shane O Driscoll (Ardú) to collaborate in designing a site specific micro mural programme within Ballydehob in 2022.
“By creating a series of mini street art pieces throughout Ballydehob village, a visual excursion will be developed where residents and visitors alike can explore the nooks and crannies that will be transformed with creative flair. Selected artists will paint small murals/sculpt small works that will integrate within the fabric of the village on architectural elements, elevating the artistic culture that already exists in Ballydehob.”
Under the theme The Rising Tide, each art work will fit on a small area within the surrounds of the village, e.g. a window pane, a door panel, shop plinth, corrugated iron panel etc. The creations will be sought out and lure the viewer in rather than overpower the viewer.
Open to visual artists working in all mediums.
Ballydehob Jazz Festival is now inviting applications from artists to be part of this project.
Artist Payment: Artists Fee Paid. Accommodation provided during install of work.

Closing date: Rolling throughout the year, there will be 3 micro murals from 3 different artists commissioned throughout 2022. Preliminary deadline, Friday 22 April 2022.
