Celebrate Culture Night at Roscommon Arts Centre, Sept 20
Celebrate Culture Night with Roscommon Arts Centre will take place as part of The Joinery offsite series on Friday 20th September at 5.30pm. All are welcome!
This Culture Night, artists Niamh Moriarty and Ruth Clinton invite you to join them on a tour of sights and sounds at Loughnaneane Park in Roscommon town. Over the centuries this landscape has been rearranged, with certain details of its history, folklore and stories becoming distorted and confused from the point of view of the person recalling them. A guided walk will explore a series of moments, worlds and trajectories that exist parallel to all instants: past, present and future. Discover the eerie, lost island! Behold the fascinating, natural sinkhole! Marvel at the mysterious Hill of Bones!
Meeting Point: Roscommon Arts Centre at 5.30pm where you can take the time to view the video installation in the Gallery before we take a stroll towards Loughnaneane Park. Remember to dress for the weather and we'll see you Friday.
