The feast of arts and cultural treats Carlow Arts Festival has come to mean has changed. We are determined to take this as an opportunity. Thanks to digital technology, we’ve been able to rethink, reset and reinvent what we do in 2020. This is the festival even we didn’t know could happen, and features acts from Argentina to Austria, the USA to Carlow.

We are proud and excited to share #SLICES of Carlow Arts Festival. These are special slices of projects and events connecting audiences and artists… from a distance, and include newly commissioned work, ARTWORKS visual art exhibition, a VR cinema in your home, exciting new, interactive digitally native projects, and the live broadcast on June 6
