Inishowen Art Festival public meeting 31.10.22

ARTLINK is exploring the feasibility of bringing an exciting new international art festival to Inishowen every two years. Members of the public are invited to attend ‘community consultation sessions’ taking place at 2pm - 5pm and 5:30pm - 7pm in St Mary's Hall (Buncrana Cinema) on Wednesday, 2nd November 2022.
During the consultation sessions, members of the public will be asked whether a new international art festival, the ‘Inishowen Biennale’, would be of interest to the local community and potential visitors. Similar multi-day, free art festivals feature large-scale installations, illuminated sculptures, video art and sound & projection works by a diverse cross-section of local, national and international artists.

Artlink Project Co-ordinator Rebecca Strain said: “We’re delighted to be developing proposals for a new art festival that would significantly enhance Inishowen’s tourism and events portfolio, not only helping to promote our wonderfully creative local artistic community but also the peninsula as an exciting and dynamic international cultural destination...

I would therefore encourage as many people as possible to come along to our community consultation sessions that will give local residents, schools and the business community an opportunity to share their thoughts on our new proposals, along with potential educational and cultural programming.”
