It Will be Alight on the Night!

Last week at the Vintage Inn in Ringsend, saw Alight! launch a new book celebrating their accomplishments over the previous number of months.

ALIGHT! is an inclusive participation project led by CoisCéim BROADREACH, which aims to inspire and connect the South East Dublin communities of Sandymount, Ringsend, Irishtown and Pearse Street to their National Cultural Institutions in a lasting and meaningful way.

Co-ordinated by Dublin’s Culture Connects in partnership with The National Gallery of Ireland and Dublin City Gallery The Hugh Lane, the activities and events in 2016 and 2017 were developed by the participants under the mentorship of professional artists, resulting in a series of creative responses celebrating the natural choreography of daily life.

Spanning all art forms, there was something for everyone as dance, design, drama, light, art, music and film collided on and around the ORANGE double decker bus!

Check out the video above for a flavour of what was achieved.
