Backing Creativity | #126BackingCreativity


126 Artist-Run Gallery is pleased to present a 4-week programme of dispensing visual art online and supporting artists and creativity during the COVID 19 pandemic. 126 will run this programme over social media platforms, Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. How it will work is, on a weekly basis, Monday to Sunday, we will take submissions on each of the above platforms (post on page and/or in story and tag 126 profile) then 126 will repost and share a selection of submissions. Alternatively, you may submit through our email and we will post your work across our social media. Each Sunday one artwork will be selected by the Board of Directors of 126 and awarded €100. At the end of the project, an online exhibition of the work will be launched. You may submit once a week. There is no theme, the work may be old or new and in any art form.


This is designed to be minimal work/effort for artists and a small way for the 126 to provide a platform for artists throughout the pandemic, as part of our broader initiative to support visual art in Ireland. For any questions please contact us via social media or by email at
