Bui Bolg Outdoor Arts was established in Wexford in 1994 by a group of young, enthusiastic art graduates aiming to bring art out on to the streets and make it accessible for all. Founding members include Colm Lowney and Lucy Medlycott.
Our first ever event was the St. Patrick’s Parade on Wexford’s quay front in 1994. Since then, Bui Bolg has gone on to tour the festival circuit appearing at events as diverse as the Earagail Arts Festival in Donegal to The Dublin Tall Ships Races 2012 to the annual National St. Patrick’s Festival Parade in Dublin.
In recent years Bui Bolg has gone beyond Ireland and we have been hosted by places as far flung as The International Tourism & Culture Festival in Beijing to the Mood Indigo Culture Festival in Bombay, as well to the Menton Lemon Festival in France.
Bui Bolg operates on social enterprise principals.
