Monkeyshine invite you to join them at The Butler Gallery, for a gentle, safe and playful half hour, to explore the roots of story and be part of the creation of a collaborative piece of art.

Come with your small tribe: your family, your household or your pod group (up to six people) to take part in this guided collaborative experience for people of all ages.

Over two days we will gradually build a story together. Like our ancient nomadic ancestors, each group will leave stories on the wall as gifts for those to come building a collective cave painting. A living story in the making. No artistic skills needed, just an open mind and a playful spirit.

Come and be part of the story and make your mark!

Spaces are limited so please book early to avoid disappointment.


Following on from the last exhibition at Butler Gallery in Kilkenny Castle ‘A Most Favourable Soil’, The Soil Project is an ongoing project to invite contemporary artists and creative practitioners to create public projects which reflect on the tangible and intangible, natural and built heritage context of Butler Gallery at Evans' Home. This programme creates 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.
