Ormston House

Ormston House is a meeting place for the arts in the heart of Limerick City. They opened in 2011 as a Cultural Resource Centre to create new opportunities for artists and arts workers. Their core question is: How can they support artists better? The centre welcomes audiences seeking intimate arts experiences and experimental projects. The three pillars of their programme are artistic ambition, community engagement and professional development.

The programme is co-designed with citizens to promote access and inclusion resulting in cultural events that are responsive to the city and its context. They aim to ground their projects in community wisdom through an open research process and have developed a participatory model of Useful Curating to demonstrate, or make visible, the decision-making process and expertise in artistic practices. The Artists-in-Residence at Ormston House play a central role in the organisation's thinking.

Ormston House is an active member of three international networks: Artists’ Initiatives MeetingsRiver Cities Platform, and Trans Europe Halles
