About

Strong communities require inspiration and creativity.

The second Festival of Light –  the first of its kind in Ireland – takes place this Autumn in the heritage town of Listowel, Co. Kerry.  
Thursday 31st October | Friday 1st November | Saturday 2nd November 2019

WHY: In an increasingly isolated rural society,  public art and public engagement is a vehicle for bringing people together, the participatory process is very beneficial for self confidence, for self-esteem and for general wellbeing.  The Festival of Light encapsulates this concept with an interactive programme facilitating new encounters with art. 

Artists using new forms of technology will create site conditional  work for the Festival of Light, encouraging maximum engagement from spectators – including Virtual Reality, Projection Mapping and Pop Up installations.
