Artists’ Graft Needed To Transform The Mundane Into Works Of Art Around Tralee

Posted by


FOLLOWING the success of last year’s initiative where five artists transformed bland utility cabinets throughout the town of Tralee into vibrant works of art, nonfaction have issued an open call for artists, designers, and creatives to submit proposals for artworks at specific sites in the town.

Graft aims to enable local artists to transform the utility boxes which litter our streets into works of art, bringing splashes of vitality and creativity to the streets of Tralee, and ultimately creating a town wide gallery of public art.

The project follows similar community art initiatives which have been successfully developed in cities and towns around the world which have made use of these unused public spaces by transforming them into artworks to help brighten up the streetscapes and helping to make a more vibrant urban environment.

This project is made possible thanks to funding from Kerry County Council’s Arts Act Grant and the support of the Arts Office, Tralee Municipal Office and ESB Networks who permitted the use of their utility boxes.

Deadline for receipt of proposals is the 8th of September. For further information on the project please email:
