Mission / Aims
The purpose of the Arts Office is to develop, co-ordinate, motivate, inspire and strengthen artistic activity throughout the city and county. We work to further strengthen Kilkenny’s position as a centre of excellence for the arts and ensure a successful and prosperous arts environment within the region.
Kilkenny City and County has an extensive, illustrious and spirited tradition within the arts; we have a rich and varied cultural and craft heritage combined with an abundance of festivals. The arts continue to be a significant ingredient in Kilkenny, contributing to the progression of the social, cultural, creative, economic, and political future of Kilkenny. The arts are an integral part of the cultural, tourism and economic development of the city and county.
