Performance of poetry / prose readings, to music written especially for the launch of A Cavan Convergence Broadsheet created during a series of workshops as part of Peace IV. Audiences will have the privilege of an inaugural viewing of the film created during the though process of the project of artists speaking about the impact – or not -that the border has had on their creativity.
Artist Heather Brett: “Creativity is a vital part of our culture and our lives. Poetry especially, is something we all turn to at some time or other. Whether it is to read, to be inspired by, for comfort, to express emotions, or to mark a celebration. The arts are a creative tool for reflection and can assist with the process of transformation.
As border people we have witnessed many changes in the last 100 years, to our country, our politics, our social and economic standing as Europeans. I believe that individuality has never been stronger. The person you are and what has made you you, is of great importance. We are what we have come through, what events have shaped us, what governance we have listened to and adopted as our own.”
