Pallas Projects/Studios and its Board of Trustees are delighted to announce that the organisation has been granted Charitable Status by the Charities Regulator. This hugely significant development, a key objective of our long-term strategic planning, is the culmination of several years of dedicated work. It helps ensure that the organisation is best placed to continue our role as a leading exponent of artist-run practices on the island of Ireland, and to provide and develop opportunity for Irish artists to make and exhibit cutting-edge and experimental work.
In addition, and in line with recent organisational and programmatic developments and in tandem with our Charitable Status, we wish to announce a restructuring of roles at Pallas Projects/Studios. We are delighted that our long-standing assistant curator Eve Woods is to take on the role of Curator/Programme Producer, with Mark Cullen and Gavin Murphy acting as joint Artistic Directors.
Pallas Projects/Studios and its Board of Trustees would like to thank all those involved in the organisation, our staff, studio artists, exhibiting artists and those who visit, engage with our exhibition and education programmes. In particular we wish to thank The Arts Council for their continued support.
We look forward to continuing our role in advocating for increased supports for artists workspaces in 2023 and beyond, and in delivering artistic and educational programmes to ensure the best emerging and early career artists can have every opportunity to thrive and produce new, exciting and meaningful work, now and into the future.
