SunSe Client Muine Bheag Arts feature in the best young talent in Ireland 2020.

SunSe Client Muine Bheag Arts

Artists Leah Corbett and Mark Buckeridge set up Muine Bheag Arts in Co Carlow, with the aim of showing that there’s an awful lot more to the arts in Ireland than what you get to see in the cities. Their first programme, Grass Roots, commissioned eight artists to make work and hold events throughout the town in 2021. A graduate of Cork’s Crawford, Corbett had spent time in Belfast as a co-director of catalyst arts, before working with the Royal Hibernian Academy’s Teen Directives programme, where workshops and activities are aimed at young people and the arts.

Buckeridge, meanwhile, graduated from the Crawford, before going on to Amsterdam’s Sandberg Institute for his post grad. Covid-permitting, he plans to take up a residency in Lithuania, and work towards a solo show there, and another at Derry’s CCA, where he plans to explore oral traditions and sean nós singing. Both artists will also continue to devote time to Muine Bheag Arts. “Having both grown up in the countryside, we were aware of the need for more cultural infrastructure in rural areas, and of the value of working outside the city,” says Buckeridge. “The generosity of the artists and local people has reaffirmed the importance of community to us,” adds Corbett.
