Following on from the last exhibition at Butler Gallery in Kilkenny Castle ‘A Most Favourable Soil’, The Soil Project will be an ongoing project to invite contemporary artists and creative practitioners to create public projects which reflect on the heritage and architectural context of Butler Gallery at Evans' Home. It is intended that this programme will create opportunities for Butler Gallery to work with artists and creative practitioners from across the South East of Ireland to create new work that is focused on public engagement.

In 2020, we will invite Monkeyshine Theatre to bring their work through projects ‘Grow’ and ‘Muck About’ to Evans' Home, to address soil directly for a young audience.
