Liz Burns will take up the role of the new Arts Officer for Wexford when she is appointed this October.

Following a previous stint as Arts Programme Manager for Fire Station Artists' Studios in Dublin, Liz will take up the role with Wexford County Council. The announcement comes 13 months after the post was made vacant following the departure of Sinead Barden.

Liz is currently the Chair of Arts and Disability Ireland. Along with working with Fire Station Studios, she has also worked as Outreach Officer with Tallaght Community Arts Centre and sat on numerous arts panels including Arts Council, Dublin City Council Arts Office and OPW.

'I am delighted to take up this appointment with Wexford County Council,' said Liz. 'Wexford County Council has a proud and widely acknowledged record in supporting the Arts and I very much look forward to working with the members and staff of the Council in further developing and promoting the Arts throughout the County.'
