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.
