Creative Places Tuam is an arts and culture programme for Tuam and the surrounding area
Creative Places Tuam offers opportunities to celebrate and grow artistic and cultural capacity in Tuam and nearby, making space for new ideas and new collaborations.
The programme offers a number of opportunities for everyone to be involved in a meaningful way. With Tuam as our venue, and its stories, history, people and future as our inspiration, Creative Places uses residencies, commissions, creative exchanges and development days, community-based artist awards, conversations and new ideas to bring the town to life.
See our programme pages for further info on upcoming residencies, research, commissions, training and conversations.
