Greywood Arts is once again working with artist Aoife Banville on a spectacular light installation above the Dissour River- to bring hope and light to Killeagh for the darker winter months ahead - But we need your help!
After two long years of lockdowns, we're not out of the dark yet - with rising costs globally, a housing crisis in Ireland, and war affecting so many, the Circle of Light installation serves as a daily beacon of hope - a small yet powerful way to lift our spirits and remind us that our community is strong and united in times of need.
Cork County Council and Creative Ireland are supporting the project in a small way, but we still have a shortfall.
Your contribution will go towards:
- Artist fees
We'll be using LED lights this year to help keep power consumption low!
Once again, the installation will be over the river, best viewed from the bridge. It will be in place for approximately 4 months, from November - February.
JOIN US FOR THE LAUNCH
We'll see the project come alight Saturday November 5th as part of our Samhain Parade. We'll meet in Glenbower Wood at 5pm to parade our lanterns made in workshops with Caoimhe Dunn through the wood accompanied by a spooky samba band!
Greywood Arts CLG is a non-profit organisation that brings artists and the community together to explore creative process, connect and grow in a welcoming space. Through this work, we foster a sense of empathy and belonging, and centre the arts in the heart of East Cork.
History - Last year colourful lampshades donated by our community crisscrossed the River Dissour. The brainchild of artist Aoife Banville, the beautiful light installation Homely launched at our Samhain parade. It was so beloved by the community of Killeagh that the lights remained up far longer than the month we anticipated - all the way untill February!
