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.
