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

Engage 2014 Programme will be announced in mid-August.

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.
