Open Call | Graft 2021

Following the success of last years initiative in which five local artists created bespoke artworks on throughout the town of Tralee, we are delighted to invite artists to be involved in Graft 2021.

Graft aims to enable local artists to transform the utility boxes which litter our streets into works of art, bringing vitality and creativity to the streets of Tralee, and ultimately creating a town wide gallery of public art.

The project follows similar community art initiatives which have been successfully developed in towns and cities around the world which have made use of these unused public spaces by transforming them into artworks, helping to brighten up the streetscape and creating a more vibrant urban environment.

Thanks to the continued support and funding from Kerry County Council’s Arts Office we are issuing an open call for artists, designers and creatives to submit proposals to create bespoke artworks for specific sites in the town.

Deadline for receipt of applications is the 8th of September.

This project is supported by Kerry County Council’s Arts Act Grant, with thanks to ESB Networks who permitted the use of their utility boxes.
