Open Call | Street Art Project at Mountshannon Arts Festival 2019

Application deadline: 30 November.

Mountshannon Arts Festival Committee are looking for submissions by artists who wish to be considered for creating a piece of street art, such as a mural or sculpture, for our next festival in June 2019.

The theme of the 2019 festival will be: “Roots and Wings”.

Points that may work in favour of your submission:

[i] Durability: Artworks that enhance the village into the future, with little or no maintenance
[ii] Cost: the organisers imagine a budget of between €500 – €3000, but projects whose budget falls outside those parameters will also be considered.
[iii] Accessibility. Something that is usable [but safe], possibly for climbing on by children, interactive and experiential, such as a musical instrument, a water based feature, or something else that invites active participation.
[iv] A project that could involve others in the creative process, where the artist acts as a facilitator.
[v] Something that relates to the area around Mountshannon, and the people who live here.
[v] All works need to be completed no later than 17th May 2019

The more detail you can provide, the better, but a rough draft of your idea, with costs, will also suffice. Mountshannon Arts Festival will decide which project[s] to support, by 22nd December

Please return all submissions, to Stephen Powell, Ballinagough, Whitegate, County Clare, or to:
