The Creative Well: Open Studio in partnership with Riverbank Arts Centre presents All that work and all this finding out in Riverbank Arts Centre, Newbridge from 5-29 May.  The Creative Well has worked for the past four years throughout Co. Kildare providing a fun and relaxed space for people to engage their creativity through experimentation, exploration and play. Open to all, from beginner to practicing artist and everyone in between The Creative Well is an ongoing collaboration between visual artists’ Emma Finucane and Dominic Thorpe, Kildare’s Arts and Wellbeing coordinator Carolann Courtney and Catherine O’Grady a HSE project coordinator (Former HSE clinical nurse specialist).

For the month of May  the gallery will be filled with visuals, a series of discussions, workshops, and artworks. We will use our time in the gallery to find out and highlight the benefits of an open art space in Newbridge. We will look at the potential of creativity and collective space for personal development, education, health and socialisation benefits and the response of the community to the Creative Well Programme so far.

Coinciding with All that work and all this finding out we will launch The Creative Well: Visiting Artist Lecture Series.
