Sligo Artists Network



Sligo Artist Network, a network/ group made up of a range of creatives from Co Sligo/ the North West, was founded in 2019 as a Creative Sligo Open Call project, now numbering over 280 members.

The network's facebook group is now an important virtual space for members, especially with the impact and implications of Covid-19.  As all members can post to the facebook page there is always a constant supply of content, managed and updated regularly by the administrator.  The Sligo Artist Network gives creatives the opportunity to avail of information sharing, training, supports, up-skilling etc.  The network is organic in nature allowing the direction to come from the network community, which will expand and grow as creatives join the facebook group.  The Network works with the Creative Ireland Culture Team and other agencies to explore opportunities to assist creatives to work together, to support and to mentor each other.
