Over the years Clare has seen beautiful, engaging, quirky and provocative street art by the likes of Conor Harrington, Eva Menes, Negative Space Art Collective and many others. Supported and enabled by organisations such as glór, Ennis Street Art Festival and Ennis Chamber of Commerce, the strength of many of the street art initiatives has stemmed from partnerships between artists and organisations, schools, businesses, community groups and the local authorities.

In 2022 Clare Arts Office successfully introduced PRISM, a pilot project in Ennis, to create new artworks in the County town. A number of works were created throughout the town by local, national and international artists.

In 2023 Clare Arts Office expanded the PRISM scheme countywide and saw works created in Tulla, Killaloe, Ennistymon and Shannon as well as in Ennis.

The 2024 PRISM scheme is now open and we welcome high quality proposals featuring partnerships with professional artists that will animate the county over the summer months.

PRISM is made possible through the support of Creative Ireland
