The Creative Well

Public Exhibition : All that work and all this finding out

The Creative Well has worked for the past four years throughout Co. Kildare providing a fun and relaxed space for people to engage their creativity through experimentation, exploration and play.  Open to all, from beginner to practicing artist and everyone in between The Creative Well: OPEN STUDIO in partnership with Riverbank Arts Centre presents “All that work and all this finding out”  The McKenna Gallery May 1st – May 31st 2015.

The Creative Well is an ongoing collaboration between visual artists’ Emma Finucane and Dominic Thorpe, Kildare’s Arts and Wellbeing coordinator Carolann Courtney and Catherine O’Grady a HSE project coordinator (Former HSE clinical nurse specialist).

For the month of May we will fill the gallery with visuals, a series of discussions, workshops, and artworks.  We will use our time in the gallery to find out and highlight the benefits of an open art space in Newbridge.  We will look at the potential of creativity and collective space for personal development, education, health and socialisation benefits and the response of the community to the Creative Well Programme so far. 

Coinciding with “All that work and all this finding out” we will launch our Creative Well: VISITING ARTIST LECTURE SERIES.
