Followed by a Q&A with the director and contributors
Plus a drinks reception, celebrating Galway 2020, European Capital of Culture from 7pm
Six locally-based artists from different disciplines reflect on what makes Galway such a draw for those with artistic sensibilities and talent. A piece of art in itself, the film flows between the visual and aural beauty of Galway, with English and Gaeilge commentary from the artists as they talk about what inspires and challenges them in this complex place. Whether it's geography or history or something more ethereal, this place on the edge of the Atlantic, where rivers and sea collide, has long inspired writers, musicians, visual artists, actors, theatre makers, singers and comedians. Director, Aodh Ó Coileáin has made a love song to Galway that does not shy away from how painful love can be at times.
