What’s the Story?
Rozzi Kennedy & care home residents from Co. Louth
12th January – 4th February 2023
‘What’s the Story?’ is a creative writing and visual arts exhibition by residents of twelve care homes in Co. Louth.
Care home residents worked with Story Facilitator Sarah Guppy to reflect on memories and imagine new stories through a series of creative writing workshops. These stories were then visually interpreted by residents from 6 different care homes, with the facilitation and support of Visual Artists Rozzi Kennedy and Orlaith Cullinane.
Visit the event page for a full list of the care homes involved. ‘What’s the Story?’ was produced by An Táin Arts Centre and funded through Louth Leader Partnership.

Cathy McKeown & Polly Maher
16th February – 11th March 2023
Stagnant is a collection of objects, paintings and drawings by Cathy McKeown and Polly Maher exploring the casual attachment to our way of life on the Border and rural Ireland – one that has remnants of control, stillness, and repetition.
Human interactions become reflected in objects and spaces, with personal and work space blurred. Sheds, yards and workshops have a division and duality. The line between functionality, storage and emotional attachment associated with the items we house unceremoniously is examined.
Opening launch: 15th February at 7pm
