A Day at Uillinn, arts activities for everybody
Just a reminder to you all that Susan MacWilliam: Modern Experiments runs to Wednesday 18 October, if you haven't already, get yourself in for a visit, or a re visit if you've been already! #SusanMacWilliam #ModernExperiments #UillinnExhibitions
Susan MacWilliam: Modern Experiements opens on Saturday 9 Sept...

IMPORTANT NOTICE: We are open for business as usual, but due to the ongoing flood relief works here in Skibbereen there is limited access to the front of the building. The contractors have very nicely left us an access point from the main street and also from the alley next to Cathal O'Donovan's bookshop. Please note though that we will have consistent access from Townshend Street via The Porch and in the side door of the building.

Myself and my daughter visited today as part of a group with her playschool on a school trip.
You made us all feel so welcome and she had a brilliant time. Thanks a million to Justine and all the crew!

What a great place. A striking building in the centre of this small town, clearly a building about which everyone must have an opinion. "You can't judge a book by it's cover" or can you? Make no as you enter, your visit will take longer than you think. The big open reception area is matched by the friendly welcoming staff. Work by local artists is offered for sale here but there is no hard sell. As you work your way through the galleries, and studios you can only wonder at the amazing work shown and done in this building and from it with community centered projects. And when you are dazzled you can rest and digest what you have seen in the delightful Kalbo's @ UILLINN in the courtyard. The only good thing about leaving the West Cork Arts Centre is that you can then return to do it all again. See More

The building is exciting inside and out; I liked it at once. The staff are warm and skilled and the mix of activities is impressive. The food next door is wonderful too. The current exhibition is stunning - West Meets West - a great concept which exceeds all expectations when you see the bold striking work from Cornwall. I will return! See More

#LandmarksandLifeforms #DiscoveryBox created by Toma McCullim at Highlanes Gallery

The Landmarks and Lifeforms (Frieda Meaney and Danny Osborne) Discovery Box is getting plenty of use today in the gallery. Discovery Box is a free, self-directe...d gallery resource for parents and carers to use with their young children in the gallery. It encourages adults and children to engage with the exhibition, see and interact with the artwork and gain insight into the exhibiting artists' practice.
The Discovery Box is not about making art and does not include art materials. It is rather a series of imaginative tools to employ the creative mind and to investigate the artwork through play and conversation. In participating, it creates a space for people to spend more time with the artwork.
This Discovery Box is specifically created by artist Toma McCullim to support the exhibition Landmarks and Lifeforms by Frieda Meaney and Danny Osborne, and commissioned by Uilinn West Cork Arts Centre.
A great tool to spend valuable and interactive time for Parents and children, Early Years facilitators and Primary School and Special Needs Class Teachers and their students. Our invigilators are always on hand to guide you through the exhibition and to introduce and help you use the Discovery Box.
Landmarks and LIfeforms is open again on Monday next and through the midterm each day (except Sunday) from 12-5pm, and until April 14. Check out full details on
Drop in and draw, and use this great resource free of charge. #lovemuseums #DiscoveryBox #CuriosityClub

Practicing for the 'Last Dance' performance - a deep collaboration I undertook with contemporary dancer Inma Pavon exploring J.S. Bach's famous Chaccone in D mi...nor for unaccompanied violin as an interactive journey of grieving through dance. All will be made clear in the coming weeks - but suffice to say, it has been an amazing and enriching project which we undertook in collaboration with residents of the local hospital.
We perform it live on 23rd Feb in Uillinn: West Cork Arts Centre.
To connect with the work directly, interact with live rehearsal streams and receive a film of the performance, plus writings and a violin map of the piece, hop on board at
