ENGAGE is a bold contemporary arts festival specialising in the promotion of emerging talent, showcased side by side with more established artists.

Engage 2013 will be an innovative, contemporary arts festival which will host a diverse spectrum of events.

ENGAGE will bring accessibility to diverse art forms to Bandon, facilitate a dialogue with various groupings, schools etc in the town and provide a platform for an engagement between art and the sustainability movement. In this way we hope to foster a spirit of mutual discovery and engagement with the local community.

In its current guise ENGAGE has a weekend format which allows for an intense vibrant layering of events and art forms. The festival provides a platform which allows the local community to engage with, respond to and be challenged by contemporary art. The varied programme will give the participants, the public the potential to experience a very broad range of art forms.
