Cork Community Art Link is a community arts charity that encourages meaningful collaborations between artists & local Cork City residents. We co-create street spectacles, parades & props to encourage deeper connections to bring creativity to places where people live, work & play.

We work with communities and individuals to develop the sense of community identity and collective pride, enabling people to learn more about themselves and the world around them, while having fun! Our work engages with people both as participants and spectators in public spaces, developing new ways of connecting with the arts.
