Communities in Collaboration

Clare Island
Fri Oct 25 - Time & Location Available Here from Oct 1st

Clare Island boasts a rich cultural heritage and a raft of craftspeople, artists, musicians and dancers – and Westival is once again reaching across the water to embrace this creative spirit.

Clare island’s artistic community and St Patrick’s National School will work alongside writer and dramatist, Horslips drummer Eamon Carr and poet Kelly Michels to curate a number of island events. The events will be anchored in an exploration of how Irish myth and legend helps us navigate and make sense of a modern world that at first sight seems so far away from the wisdom of these stories.

Held in association Westival and Connemara-based Doire Press, and supported by Blackshell Farms.
