Each workshop will consist of a hands-on workshop where you can learn new skills and techniques. There will also be a talk from the artist about their practice, past projects and their career journey.
These workshops are suitable for ages 16+ who are interested in a creative career. They are also suitable for adults wanting to start a creative career.

SEEK Festival is centered on promoting contemporary urban art in Dundalk, Ireland. By commissioning established and emerging artists locally, nationally and internationally, we aim to promote the town culturally and artistically, repositioning the area as a vibrant hub for creativity.
SEEK 2022 will highlight the important influence art can have in the public domain, its role as a catalyst for change, helping reinvigorate and refresh some of our town centre spaces. The themes behind the artwork will be instrumental in telling Dundalk's story and connect people to our history and heritage.
Culturally Dundalk has been shaped over the ages, with many historical figures and events. With our outdoor art gallery, we hope to generate and inspire local pride and help to forge a new identity based on creativity, while still celebrating our past.
