SHARE ARTS ACTIVITIES

Creativity starts here…

Share offers an ongoing portfolio of art activities for visitors to the centre, with a wide range of opportunities to take part in visual and creative arts. Share has a proven pedigree in running arts activities. Established in 1981, SHARE has been welcoming groups of all shapes, sizes and abilities to participate in fun, safe activities.

Arts Arena

All of our arts activities are delivered from our purpose built Arts Arena, which is also available as a resource to groups who wish to run their own arts programmes, or need a venue to practice, rehearse or perform. A wide range of audio visual and theatre equipment is also available.

Share’s resident arts workers can design arts programmes specific to your needs and the experienced and enthusiastic arts team are available to advise and assist with all aspects of the Arena, including lighting and sound equipment.

Share Arts recognises the ability of the arts to make an important contribution to sustaining social,cultural, educational, economic activities in any region and so, by extension, improve quality of life and well being.

Arts Programmes

Out of an appreciation for the specific needs a rural area has, Share Arts offers two creative arts programmes:

An arts and crafts programme for its residential and day visitors. This includes film making, pottery and T-Shirt painting to all ages and ability.

A community arts programme which includes participating in a wide variety of workshops: dance, drama, writing, film making, circus skills and visual arts. Again these are for people of all ages and abilities and they are designed to be participant led. They run at SHARE or outreach to schools and community venues.

Recent Art Projects
Some recent projects that Share have been involved with:

Lisnaskea Fool Time Community Festival – the annual festival in partnership with local business, community associations, schools, youth groups and artists.
