IRELAND’S FIRST FESTIVAL OF LIGHT 31st October – 2nd November 2019

FESTIVAL TAKES PLACE 31/10 – 02/11 2019
WE ARE CURRENTLY UPDATING THE WEBSITE. FULL PROGRAMME ANNOUNCED SOON!

The second Festival of Light – the first of its kind in Ireland – takes place this Autumn in the heritage town of Listowel, Co. Kerry.
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.
