Speaking about this year’s programme, Chairperson Anna Mulcahy said:
“We are thrilled to be back this year, and to welcome new audiences with a programme that has so much to choose from, whether you are a fan of visual arts, theatre, poetry, song, dance, literature, photography, comedy or spoken word you will find something for you. Our focus on making our whole town a stage, means that you will find art in churches, on walls and in windows, breathing life into spaces that may have been previously unseen. Kinsale is a thriving town because of our welcome and openness, this festival mirrors that with local, national and international acts, many of whom call Kinsale home, or home for now.”
This year the festival is also delighted to provide a platform for ‘Through Ukrainian Eyes’, a photography exhibition from newly arrived visitors from Ukraine where they share first impressions of their time in Ireland as well as memories of the homeland they have left.
