Promenade supports artists and communities to create incredible new arts experiences in Ireland's public places and unusual spaces.
We seed and build Irish and international partnerships to create high quality and ambitious new outdoors arts works.
ARE AT PROMENADE's VERY HEART
We support artists and organisations with their strategic development to help reach their goals and aspirations in the fields of circus, participatory arts, public art, street arts and spectacle.
SUPPORTING ARTISTS & COMMUNITIES TO DELIVER
Promenade’s ambition is to support artists and organisations working in these creative fields to create work that is unexpected, relevant and contemporary, impacting positively on many people’s lives.
We aim to support the next generation of producers and managers through training and mentoring with their career development.
Promenade was founded in 2021 by experienced creative producer, curator and management consultant Kath Gorman, who has worked both in Ireland and the UK.
She has significant senior arts management experience in the area of festivals and venue management, supporting artists to work with communities of interest and place.
Kath has a passion for making the arts accessible to a wider public, creating new and exciting arts experiences, often site-specific or outdoors.
Promenade will work with a hand-picked number of artists and organisations, producing specific projects, supporting them to reach their strategic and artistic goals including increasing their partnership and funding bases.
Alongside this we want to help grow a better skilled and more diverse arts sector, in particular, providing training and coaching to emerging and mid-career producers, particularly those less under-represented in the arts sector, wanting to further their career progression.
