KCAT aims to create a new situation: an environment in which artists and students from different backgrounds and abilities can work and create together and in which lifelong learning is an opportunity for everyone.
Founded in 1999, after a pilot phase under the EU Horizon Program, the KCAT (Kilkenny Collective for Arts Talent) Art and Study Centre is an open access Arts and Life Long Learning initiative promoted by the Camphill Communities. KCAT delivers visual art and theatre courses, and is home to the KCAT Studio and the Equinox Theatre company.
The KCAT Studio Artists are supported by mentors and a facilitator in all aspects of their professional development. There is a strong sense of community and mutual support between artists and mentors, which extends beyond the walls of the studio. Working individually, all share, inspire and motivate each other. The group has executed commissions and exhibited in Australia, Japan, the United States and a number of European countries. They have collaborated on projects with other arts organisations in Ireland and abroad and advocated their own work and that of KCAT. Strongly engaged in the arts community both locally and internationally, KCAT challenges the “Insider/Outsider Arts” debate.
