'A Dialogue through Poetry and Music' is a collaboration between five poets and musicians who were commissioned to create new poetry and musical works on the theme of 1921. Participating poets
included Emily Cullen, Louis de Paor, Luke Morgan, Noelle Lynskey and Nuala O’Connor. They were joined by musicians Ciaran Cannon, Dana Lyn, Ger Fahy, Emily Greaney with Tomás and Róisín Mannion.
'Artists & Activists: 1922 Women in a Changing Cultural Landscape' highlighted the role of women as artists and creatives in the early twentieth century by showcasing the contributions of specific women who revolutionized Irish art including ‘domestic’ art pieces such as weaving, embroidery and clothing.
The project included 4 commissions covering the fields of music, song, dance, and craft.
