National Volunteering Week runs from May 12 to 18, 2014.

Founded in Autumn 2012 by a small group of volunteers in the town, Clonakilty Community Arts Centre (CCAC) is to date both managed and facilitated by volunteers.

Volunteer facilitators and resident artists, as well as visiting arts facilitators facilitate a wide variety of inclusive arts based activities at the centre. Opportunities have also been created for Tus and student placement and CE scheme participants.

Preceding ‘National Volunteering Week’, the centre would like to thank the wonderful team of volunteers who contribute their time, skills and energy. As a result of their hard work, CCAC has grown considerably and has now received recognition from The Clonakilty Town Council; Cork County Council and The Dept of Arts, Heritage and Gaeltact.

New Volunteers are always welcome. CCAC works in conjunction with the guidelines of Volunteer Ireland Cork in terms of volunteer policy and procedures.

The centre would like to invite all those who have volunteered there to join in a photo-shoot with French Photograher Jean Marcel Coulombeau during his visit to Clonakilty in May.

His photographic exhibition ‘Stars Anomyes’ will on display at CCAC from May 12 to 30.
