Full Programme available at:

This is a free online, international seminar that will consider the broad concept of art in the landscape and related themes, including but not limited to, the intersect of art in the landscape on our communities, environment, tourism and economics the future of sculpture trails and parks in delivering environmental and social resilience and how the development of more sustainable art (art forms) in the landscape  aims to positively elevate the arts contribution to place.

The seminar aims to:

  • Gather expertise across arts, culture, ecology, environment, tourism, and community sectors from the perspective of project delivery, policy development and collaboration and to learn from national and international experts
  • share knowledge and best practice that will inform new ways of working with art, artists
  • highlight how cross-sector working can be effective in achieving shared outcomes and influencing policy
  • focus on the experience of international artists’ arts organisations, curators and producers who also work on the presentation of art in the landscape.
  • invite a broad sector audience from interested local community including artists’, independent traders, businesses, landowners, local authority representatives and international actors who are interested in engaging in art in the landscape projects in Ireland and beyond.


The event is rooted in consideration of Ireland’s art in the landscape assets: Tír Sáile Sculpture Trail in County Mayo and Lough Boora Sculpture Park in County Offaly.  It is intended that the seminar stimulates and challenges ideas around both locations as well as presenting the potential opportunities for their future development.


Part of an ongoing project with Offaly County Council (lead partner), Mayo County Council and Visual Artist Ireland. Studio Response are the Cultural Producers for this event. Funded through the Arts Council’s Invitation for Collaboration Scheme.
