CATA – ‘Come And Talk About’ is an art project developed by the Irish artist collective ALL ‘Art Links Limerick’. The project, which is focused on water and the River Shannon, aims to emphasise the importance of the River Shannon to Limerick City as an amenity, a resource and as an attraction.

The launch in the Faber Studios on Henry Street in Limerick attracted a large number of people, both those involved in the project and those with an interest in water and the Shannon. The launch reception was followed by a short talk by the artists involved in ALL ‘Art Links Limerick’ and this was followed by an open dialogue discussion involving those present and everyone interested in the CATA Project.

The new website showcases the collective creative process followed by those involved in Art Links Limerick throughout the duration of the project. It documents the establishment of the CATA Project website as a valuable on-line resource for those with an interest in both socially engaged art and the River Shannon.

The launch also offered an opportunity for all, including MulkearLIFE, to network and collaborate with supporters and friends and the many diverse people who have been involved in the process and those interested in the River Shannon.
