VISUAL ARTs submissions are now open.

We are pleased to announce the 2K19 visual & performing arts submissions are NOW OPEN, and we cannot wait to see what you have in store for us this year. Click here to find out how to submit your work.

Since 2013, K-FEST has transformed Killorglin's disused, deserted, and long-forgotten buildings into bespoke pop up galleries, showcasing more than 700 artists and 3,500 original works of art. Our emerging and established artists alike bring their paint, print, sculpture, performance, textiles, fashion, graphic design, photography, film, and audio-visual pieces for display in these strange spaces, and visitors flock to listen, to learn, to think, to feel.

Artists act as resuscitators.

It's K-FEST's ferociously talented exhibiting artists who breathe life back into the derelict and disused buildings throughout Killorglin. Check out these great videos of past (and maybe even future) K-FEST artists and Screaming Pope Prize finalists, and peruse through a ton of cool snaps of our pop-up galleries captured over the past five years.
