SEEK Contemporary Urban Arts Festival 2020


From: Saturday, 1 August 2020 To: Saturday, 8 August 2020


Town Centre Dundalk Louth

The SEEK Contemporary Urban Arts Festival will once again make a colourful return to Dundalk - the festival is aimed at attracting some of the world’s best outdoor muralists and urban artists to Dundalk, to help promote the town both culturally and artistically.

In its second year, the festival will take place in various locations in the heart of Dundalk from the 1st - 8th August. Building on the success of the 2019 festival there will be guided walking tours, children’s and teenager’s painting workshops, and pottery workshops for all to enjoy.

This year the festival is delighted to have a prolific international line up of artists who are all based on the island of Ireland. Each artist has been tasked with painting a largescale mural of a character or theme which ties in with telling Dundalk's story. A new and innovative way of connecting people to Dundalk’s vibrant history and heritage.

Bookings are through Eventbrite:

• Scheduled guided walking tours will run throughout the festival and will visit both the 2019 and 2020 murals. The tours will allow visitors to explore the themes behind each artwork. Book here
