This event will be part of the Tech Week Sessions at Féile na Bealtaine (http://feilenabealtaine.ie/home/) Féile na Bealtaine (FnaB), held annually on the Dingle Peninsula has evolved from a tentative day-long event in the mid nineties to a bursting-at-the-seams, multi disciplinary arts festival with over 100 separate events over the course of five days in 2017. It has become a vibrant, robust and well attended and regarded festival. We are committed to creating a stronger community through the act of organising a festival, through exploration of the arts in its many manifestations, through creating social spaces not related to alcohol or its promotion, and through the relentless encouragement of local people into artistic endeavours.
