Nenagh’s unique, weeklong annual cultural event, switch, takes place from February 5 to 12.

Now in its fourth year, this free event, presenting the works of eight international artists, will run daily from twilight to midnight.

Visitors to Nenagh can expect to see shopfronts and spaces throughout the town transformed by projected film and video artworks, created by a wide array of artists from around the globe.

Switch will be launched on Sunday, February 5, at 6.30pm from the Ormond Hotel Bar, Kenyon Street. The launch will immediately be followed by a walking tour, leaving at 6.45pm. The tour will take approximately 90 minutes.

Switch is organised in partnership with North Tipperary County Council’s arts office and co-funded by the council and The Arts Council. This year, switch is also receiving support from the Mid-West Regional Authority and the EU INNOVATE project to develop aspects of the exhibition, including the walking tour and a masterclass in film and video led by international artist Mark Neville.
