What's On

Seek 2019

When

From: Saturday, 15 June 2019 To: Saturday, 22 June 2019

Where

Town Centre Dundalk Louth

Seek - a Contemporary Urban Arts Festival.  The festival is centred around promoting visual arts in Dundalk.

By commissioning established and emerging artists, locally, nationally and internationally, the aim is to help promote the town culturally and artistically, repositioning the area as a vibrant hub for creativity.  Seek 2019 will highlight the important influence art can have in the public domain, its role as a catalyst for change, helping reinvigorate and refresh some of our town centre spaces.  In turn the story behind the artwork helps with both telling Dundalk's story and connecting people to our heritage.
