How would your family like to host an artist for this summer’s 40th anniversary of the Carlow Arts Festival from June 4-9 of this year?

Over the past several years the festival has welcomed world class international artists to perform.

This year, in a bid to get everyone in Carlow involved for its 40th anniversary, organisers would love to offer a truly Carlow experience to our wonderful guests.

What is a Home Share?
A safe and welcoming home for artists to stay as guests for the duration of their trip to Carlow.

Artists spend two, three, or four nights with their host families depending on the length of their stay in town. The Home Share Program does more than provide artists with a comfortable place to sleep.

The home share experience adds a unique and personal experience for both the artists and the participating host families alike.

Host Requirements
• A willingness to welcome a guest into your family and home for the duration of festival
• Provide a comfortable and quiet space for rest and sleep, as well as an atmosphere where artists can comfortably relax and wind down.
• A nourishing breakfast
• Walking proximity to Carlow town or the ability to ensure that artists are transported to and from the festival site in a safe and timely manner.

Host Benefits
• A fee will be paid to the host family for the service.
• A discount on ticket sales to all festival programmes 
• Invitation to Carlow Arts festival opening night
