VISUAL Carlow is an award-winning Creative Arts complex, in the town centre. The centre hosts regular exhibitions of national and international artists, and a vibrant programme of film, music, drama and dance. As partners, Creative Arts students from Carlow Institute work with VISUAL/George Bernard-Shaw on events and productions. Further afield, you can access festivals and events including music, literature and arts. For those who like the spot-light, there are local performing groups, and cultural and historical societies to join.
