STAMP – Festival of Creativity

Thursday 16 May – Saturday 18 May 2024
STAMP – Festival of Creativity | Thursday 16 May – Saturday 18 May 2024 | Triskel Arts Centre | Image: looks roughly like a red number 7, as tall as the image as a whole, against a pale-blue background – except that the rising diagonal that a normal 7 would have is broadened out such that the red continues to the right edge of the image; that diagonal is also nice and curvaceous

STAMP 2024 will run from 16 to 18 May at the Triskel Arts Centre in Cork City.

benchspace, Cork Craft & Design, Sample-Studios and Shandon Art Studios have come together to offer Corkonians and visitors alike a jam-packed weekend programme of over 50 art, design and craft events, exhibitions, workshops, demonstrations, screenings, and markets, all in one extraordinary venue – Triskel Arts Centre.
