The Arts includes; music, literature, film, theatre, dance, visual arts, circus and architecture. The Arts Programme is designed to encourage partnerships between artists, arts organizations and community groups and thus increase audiences for Arts and Cultural Providers throughout Tipperary.

Arts Programming also provides opportunities for artists to create and perform or display innovative new work, locally, nationally and internationally.
