Kilkenny Civic Trust is hosting the Kilkenny Catwalk 2021 art trail. It is a fantastic arts trail and it will be popular with residents and visitors alike, it will bring businesses, arts and local communities together. This is an opportunity to partner with us to drive interest in your business, as we work together to create an opportunity for local residents and visitors to get outdoors, follow the trail and enjoy our wonderful City whilst adhering to physical distancing requirements.
The Kilkenny Catwalk 2021 is a trail of 21 wonderful Kilkenny Cat sculptures which have been decorated by some of our most talented artists, mainly local, for public display in and around Kilkenny City.
This arts project is a partnership project between Kilkenny Civic Trust and Kilkenny County Council which can be engaged with outdoors, whilst adhering to physical distancing requirements, regardless of restrictions. The Cat Walk art trail will be fun, bright and engaging and will bring a smile to people’s faces and support the Keep Well Campaign. People are invited to get outdoors, follow the trail and enjoy it.
It has been designed to bring businesses, arts and local communities together. It provides creative work for mainly local artists, and gives local businesses the knock-on benefits of visitors being attracted, to Kilkenny to view the new creative and colourful trail. It will be also supported by a comprehensive marketing programme designed to attract significant local, regional and national coverage to the benefit of all parties involved.
