It’s a wonderful achievement to get to this stage of the fundraising for the Arts Centre with nearly 1,800 tickets sold and only the last few hundred to go. Artists, writers, poets, sculptures, photographers, singers, comedians, musicians, dancers, actors, performers and promoters are busy creating scenarios for the future landscape of Tullamore Arts Community.
A multi-functional, multi-cultural Arts Centre for Tullamore will open up many new avenues for existing artists and will also herald a new era and new possibilities for the generations to come. The new Arts Centre will allow everyone to showcase their talents in a new purpose built building. To make it happen we will need to get behind the fundraising efforts and sell a few more tickets.
“We are delighted to get to this stage of the fundraising campaign, it’s a fantastic achievement in this current climate to be so near our target,” said Denise Keoghan, Chair of Tullamore Amateur Dramatic Society, “For too long TADS has been homeless. The prospect of an Arts Centre will raise the bar for us and all of my fellow members of the Arts Community in Offaly.”
Using their creative juices, photographer by Bernadette Chalke has used material for outfits donated by Ann Larkin, Dress Fabrics and Crafts Mucklagh to create little orphans which depicts the current mindset of many in the Arts in Tullamore. The wonderful outfits were designed, made and kindly donated by Mary Kearns, Killurin, Killeigh with lots of help given by Kate Hanlon.
