Epic Awards

The Epic Awards shine a spotlight on the achievements of creative groups across the UK and Republic of Ireland each year.

The 2020 Epic Awards closed for applications on 14 June 2020. This year, a diversity of inspiring groups and projects were awarded at our first virtual ceremony on Thursday 22 October. Discover the stories of each winner. Read more in our press release.

Each year, shortlisted entries are put forward for the highly coveted People's Choice Award while winners and runners-up from each of the four main categories (England, Ireland, Scotland, Wales) are selected by our panel of judges.

The Epic Awards are an annual chance for your creative group or project to be recognised for the incredible work you've done over the past year.

Take a Part Carlow< Back to Shortlist

Take A Part Carlow is led by an Arts Action Group (AAG) made up of community representatives from the Tullow Road area of Carlow Town along with agency partners.

Since 2016 the AAG have come together to create, pursue and deliver creative activities for the greater community in that area. So far, a family fun day featuring giant easels to paint on and a workshop in circus skills, a mask making workshop, a 5 week long community arts project with local children, and an ongoing Artists commission have all been delivered, and all under the banner Take A Part Carlow.

The pilot project now running since May 2017 is in full swing and aims to simply “Make Art on the Tullow Road”.

Take A Part Carlow was initiated by Carlow County Council Arts Office in partnership with the Arts Council of Ireland (under the Invitation to Collaborate Scheme), Take A Part CIC (UK), Carlow County Development Partnership and Carlow Regional Youth Services.
