‘Culture Night / Oíche Chultúir is an annual, all-island public event that celebrates culture, creativity and the arts… On Culture Night / Oíche Chultúir, arts and cultural organisations and venues of all shapes and sizes, from independent studios and art-spaces to national cultural institutions, extend their opening hours to allow increased access for the public. Special and unique events and workshops are specifically programmed at participating locations and, thanks to the continued support of the Arts Council and local authorities across the island of Ireland, all activities are made available to the public free of charge.’
‘The fifteenth edition of Culture Night / Oíche Chultúir took place on Fri 18 Sep 2020 presenting a programme with over 900 offline and online events.
Culture Night is normally a ‘one night only’ experience, however this year, we invite you to continue to seek out the hidden online gems you may not have had a chance to catch on the night.
A massive thank you to Arts Council Ireland and the local authorities across the island of Ireland for making this year’s programme possible, despite the challenges. Grá mór to all the artists, arts organisations and local organisers for creating such fantastic events and activities, finding new ways for us to connect through culture / bheith le chéile trí chultúr.’ https://culturenight.ie/
As chairperson of Longford Writers Group I was delighted to take part with other members in this year’s Culture Night. We were asked to do something online for Creative Ireland Longford and Culture Night Longford. So we made pre-recorded videos and put them up on the night on the Longford Writers Facebook page. Why not drop by and take a look? https://www.facebook.com/LongfordWriters
Here are my contributions to the night.
