Street Art Festival organised by CIT CCAD alumni

ARDÚ - a street art initiative celebrating Cork city’s traditions, history, resolution, and art.

Organised and involving CIT CCAD alumni Shane O'Driscoll and Peter Martin, and MA Art & Process student Deirdre Breen.

The festival programme welcomes seven of Ireland’s most respected and renowned street artists: Shane O’Driscoll, Deirdre Breen, Peter Martin, James Earley, MASER, ACHES, and Garreth Joyce, to create works at key city centre locations, in response to a theme inspired by the 1920 Burning of Cork.


'Ardú Street Art Initiative arrives with the intention of injecting colour, vibrancy, and life into the city and aims to unite the Leeside community through art, lifting its creative energy at a time when it needs it most.

Providing a safe space for observation, conversation, and inspiration, the murals will add to the cultural landscape of the city centre by revitalising the areas of the city they inhabit. Over the coming weeks, the murals will appear at Harley’s Street, Wandesford Quay, The Kino, Anglesea Street, 61 North Main Street, Kyle Street, and Henry Street.'
