Monaghan Arts Network

The Monaghan Arts Network was originally set up under Monaghan Community Forum’s “Hands Together 2” Project in 2014. It is currently a volunteer community organisation that promotes the diversity of artistic talent in Co. Monaghan from many diverse communities by way of a monthly Monaghan Arts Network Showcase held in the Market House, Monaghan and special events at the Garage Theatre, Monaghan.

The network’s 11-strong dynamic committee has been involved in many arts projects in Monaghan, including curating the ARTSLounge at the Hillgrove Hotel, organizing a large charity fundraising event for the McCabe Family Fund, and producing “Splitting the Stones”, a CD of local musicians who have performed in the showcase.

Since March 2014, Monaghan Arts Network has showcased almost 100 local artists, musicians, sculptors, poets, designers, photographers and comedians.
