Getting the Show Back on the Road
The AGM is over us and our new and enthusiastic Board is finding its feet and slowly getting up to speed. Our new Board of Directors can be found on our website www.ranelagharts.ie under ‘Our Team’.
Because of impending deadlines, the new Board quickly diverted to helping the Festival and Events Committee prepare submissions for funding and finalising the ‘Challenges’.
About Ranelagh Arts
Ranelagh Arts is committed to providing a platform and incubation
environment for creative and community activities. Our declared objective is to promote, foster and encourage all forms of the arts and in particular to develop an arts centre for the benefit of the community in Ranelagh and its environs“
Ranelagh Arts has operated since 2005 and our annual Arts Festival has been privileged to include names such as Maureen O’Hara, Neil Jordan, Liam O’Maonlai, Frank McGuinness, Donal Lunny and Ken Doherty to name but a few.
In 2009 we found ourselves a home at 26 Ranelagh from which we ran an all year round programme of exhibitions, live music, poetry readings, creative workshops, cine clubs and many other creative activities designed to connect the community (local and beyond) with artistic and cultural opportunities. We lost our premises in October 2018 but after a long search we are delighted to say that we have found a new home for Ranelagh Arts at No. 6 Ranelagh. Wed are working hard to get it ready and we look forward to welcoming you there as soon as the current Covid restrictions permit.
If you would like to get involved with Ranelagh Arts please feel free to get in touch.
