Halted – A showcase of Traveller Culture through Arts, Crafts & Film (Enniscorthy)

The Presentation Arts Centre

Wexford Filmmakers Robert Tyrrell and Joanne Heffernan in conjunction with Screen Wexford, FDYS, Wexford Arts Office, and The Presentation Arts Centre present a showcase of Traveller arts, crafts & film.

Fresh from its premiere at the Galway Film Fleadh, Robert Tyrrell & Joanne Heffernan’s short documentary, Halted, is a short documentary film about the everyday lives of the Travelling community in Enniscorthy. Halted was shot last year after the filmmaking duo received funding through Wexford County Council’s New Voices bursary. It will be accompanied by an hour-long programme of short films about traveller culture.

Working with the local FDYS Traveller inclusion program in Enniscorthy this film screening will accompany an exhibition of work by the Travelling Community from Enniscorthy, Co. Wexford which runs at Presentation Arts Centre from 17th September – 15th October. This event will be catered with some light refreshments.
