AMA is a group with diverse and strong skillsets, representing community, statutory and business sectors. It's non-political, focussed and action oriented.
Most importantly, the group has a track record of achievements and community buy in.
Two sentences placed upon a newly created Facebook page started the ball rolling back in 2014:
“A place to promote all that is happening on the Music and Arts Scene in and around the Arklow area. A co-op for musicians, singers, dancers, artists and photographers to support each other in trying to secure a headquarters for us all.”
Ms. Yvonne Kenny had just created a new page on the social media platform, encouraging local performers to use the page to both engage with and inform a potential audience. The surge in popularity of the page served only to fuel the desire to see Arklow once again with a venue fit for purpose, and thus Arklow Music and Arts Limited CLG was formed, in late 2014.
The time is now right as economic recovery accelerates. Arklow is again a growing town with a young vibrant population.
The AMA group has the ability to source funds and fundraise. Activities so far have included two major productions, the 1916 Commemoration concert in 2016, and the Kynoch’s Remembrance concert of 2017. With resources and political will, we can and will deliver.
Arklow town is always buzzing with music and arts activity. The town's heritage is steeped in musical tradition and creativity. Below you will find information about the upcoming events that AMA is proud to be associated with.
