UPDATE 10 January 2023:

Dear artists, in 2022 we partnered with Big Look Art on a mentoring scheme for visual artists in Waterford with the support of the Waterford City and County Council Arts Office.
Artists selected under the scheme had the opportunity to work closely with participating mentors Catherine Barron, Julie Cusack, Eamon Colman, Maurice Quillinan, Dave West and Gabhann Dunne.
This six month scheme is now successfully drawing to a close: you are welcome to explore some of the results and artists and mentors’ feedback on the mentoring scheme in a series of social media posts published on Artform Instagram and Facebook pages during Dec 2022 – January 2023 ( @artformdunmoreeast ).
Please stay in touch through our web pages and social media to keep up-to-date with similar initiatives for 2023.
