It provides an opportunity for both new and experienced artists from Ireland and abroad to enhance their careers. With additional community programs that foster inquiry through direct involvement in the arts, the program is dedicated to promoting and developing artistic self-expression. Visual art programming and exhibitions, an international artist-in-residence program, music concerts, community art programs and workshops, and other activities all bring people to the eastern area of Cork.
The Sirius Centre for the Arts is a multidisciplinary arts organization based in East Cork’s Cobh-Glanmire neighbourhood.

Sirius offers a range of excursions for local primary, secondary, and youth organizations and participatory initiatives tailored to each show each year.
