Bringing the magic, mystery and history of holy wells to life
An exhibition of drawings, documentary and artist talk in Tuam Library exploring the history, heritage, folklore, and rituals associated with wells surrounding Tuam. The project re-positions ancient wells at the centre of the community as a source of physical and spiritual wellbeing and poses important and challenging questions about our current relationship with water and the environment. Although this work has been previously exhibited online, there are many people of an older age group (Tuam Tidy Towns) interested in this project. it is important for them to see the physical work for the first time in Tuam.
