The Lighthouse Project at Hook Head
For Culture Night this year, local artists Sasha Terfous, Richard Carr and Bascivlle will collaborate on a site specific project at Hook Head as part of the Lighthouse Project. The Lighthouse Project is a collaborative artistic response to lighthouses around Ireland, curated by Dani Gill, where writers and artists from other mediums, take inspiration from the communities and landscape around lighthouses, producing poems, stories, songs, audio trails, installations and film work. Inspired by To the Lighthouse (Virgina Woolf), poet and project curator Dani Gill is drawn to exploring these outposts around Ireland, their origins, and stories, and how they are beacons, to both those at sea and on land. On Culture Night audiences will follow a guided soundscape experience into the lighthouse, culminating in a live performance by Sasha Terfous.
The tours are now fully booked but vistors are welcome onsite to grab a coffee and enjoy the sunset in the spectacular seeting of the Hook Lighthouse which is open till 8pm.
The Lighthouse project is supported by Wexford County Council's Creative Ireland Programme.
