Programme of the day
Inhabitants Programme 2017
Inhabitants is a series of events and activities across visual arts, architecture and theatre, which highlights the diverse and innovative work happening in the arts in Callan and across Ireland. This year focuses on one key theme, Public Declaration. We’re delighted to invite guest curator Róise Goan to devise Testimony – stories of courage, stepping out of the comfort zone into the unknown, citizenship and its relative freedoms and burdens, love, belonging and standing out. Our programme allows for new audiences and those familiar to engage in cutting-edge art experiences in our small town.
Inhabitants is produced by Trasna Productions with the support of the Arts Council of Ireland Small Festivals Award and Kilkenny Leader Partnership. Special thanks to the Abhainn Rí Festival, Callan Community Network, KCAT Arts Centre, Callan Workhouse Union, Monkeyshine Theatre, Inclusion Ireland and Fennelly’s for their ongoing support and collaboration.
