Like Alannah, Kinsale attracts many artists who chose to call the town home. Our theatre events include many of those resident professionals who found themselves struggling because of the pandemic. Other highlights include the bard John Spillane and singer/songwriter Lorraine Nash at the Drive-in at Saile.
The visual arts won’t be neglected. This year, in the context of the global pandemic, we invited our artists to consider the theme of The Year Earth Changed, which is the title of the David Attenborough documentary on the positive transformational effects of lockdown on nature. We hope that Attenborough’s potent and powerful message for change will prove an inspiration for the arts and also for how we live our lives.
We are continuing to encourage the creativity of Kinsale’s children, the artists of the future, with some very special children’s events taking place in the Bowling Green. Thank you to all of those who are working hard to make this happen for the children of Kinsale.
We plan on enjoying this year’s events and we hope that you will too. Thank you to everyone who made KAW 2021 a reality and who continue to support the arts.
