Slow Art Day 2023

Firkin Crane Theatre, Cork: Slow Art Day 2023

Join us on Saturday 15th April

We are excited to be taking part in Slow Art Day 2023 on Saturday 15th April, with an Exhibition and Workshop hosted by Crane Visual.

Founded in 2010, Slow Art Day is a global event (more than 1,500 museums and galleries have participated) with a simple mission: help more people discover for themselves the joy of looking at and loving art.

Why slow?

When people look slowly at a piece of art they make discoveries. The most important discovery they make is that they can see and experience art without an expert (or expertise). And that’s an exciting discovery. It unlocks passion and creativity and helps to create more art lovers.
