STAMP Festival of Creativity is Back!

STAMP Festival of Creativity returns to Cork City May 16 to 18 2024.

Four Cork art, design, and craft organisations are teaming up again to celebrate and support local creativity under one roof, at the Triskel Arts Centre.

benchspace, Cork Craft & Design, Sample-Studios and Shandon Art Studios have come together to offer Corkonians and visitors alike a jam-packed weekend programme of over 50 art, design and craft events, exhibitions, workshops, demonstrations, screenings, and markets, all in one extraordinary venue – the Triskel Arts Centre.

Visitors are invited to try hands-on workshops including screen printing, basket weaving, pottery wheel throwing, slip casting, woodturning and oil painting up close in a series of live demos. STAMP invites people of all ages to come, explore your own creativity and gain a new insight into Cork’s cultural vibrancy. STAMP has been made possible by the support of Cork City Council, the Arts Council of Ireland, Local Enterprise Office – Cork City, We are Cork, and the Creative Ireland programme administered by the Cork City Arts Office.

“We’re delighted to see STAMP running for a third year, showcasing the contribution that creative organisations make to the city’s economy and cultural infrastructure. From its inception, the STAMP project has been about celebrating cultural & creative industries, facilitating collaboration between Cork’s creative organisations and supporting them to unlock their collective economic power. We look forward to another opportunity to highlight the positive contributions that artists and craftspeople make to their local community, and showcase Cork as the attractive, creative and cultural tourist destination we know it to be.”
~ Seamus Coghlan, Cork City Council Head of Economic Development.
