This event is the longest running community Arts festival in Ireland. Clifden Community Arts Week, now in its 39th year, has taken place from September 15th - 25th. Audiences enjoyed a very high quality artistic programme with a superb literary, musical and visual art content which again has had the community arts of Clifden and the surrounding hinterland as a central focus with creative writing, music, theatre, graphic design and film workshops and performances taking place in the local schools for the duration of the festival.
