We are taking part in Skibbereen Arts Festival 2018 with a Xeno-designed billboard as part of the Sign(s) of the Times project. The festival begins on 27th July 2018, so if you are in the west Cork / Skibbereen vicinity please go and check out our latest installment from the Skibbereen: Lost City Hydrothermal Field site-specific iteration of The Xenophon Project.
Fall through the Xeno timeslip with us as we install Xenophon: From the Beginning, currently on in Droichead Arts Centre until 4th June 2018. Many thanks to everyone at Droichead, especially Tony and Paul, for helping us get this installed.
We have a lot going on this summer and we would love you to join us on our Xeno journey.
In Belfast, Maeve's poem 'The Signal', an excerpt from Xenophon: Almanac of Tomorrow is part of the current curation on the Poetry Jukebox, located outside the Crescent Arts Centre.
Meanwhile, in Drogheda our show Xenophon: From the Beginning is on in Droichead Arts Centre until 2nd June. Admission is free, and the show features the largest collection shown together of artefacts and installation from across the lifespan of the Xenophon Project.
Over the summer, Siobhán continues her residency at West Cork Arts Centre in Skibbereen. She will host an open studio most weeks on Thursdays and Fridays. We are planning a public engagement event at West Cork Arts Centre in June with neural re-programming and poetry on the banks of the River Ilen - more details to follow soon.
Bringing some post-human Xeno-themes to a younger audience, Siobhán will be engaging in a new programme with Superprojects in Galway, an initiative for young audiences that generates possibilities for creative encounters with contemporary art and artists.
And in something completely different, Maeve will be facilitating creative writing workshops for groups as part of the community outreach programme at Hillsborough Castle and Gardens, ahead of its re-opening in July 2018, following a complete re-furbishment.
So while we may be a bit quieter on twitter and facebook over the summer, we haven't fallen through a timeslip - you can catch us in Belfast, Hillsborough, Galway, Drogheda and Skibbereen over the summer...and then in Triskel Arts Centre in Cork City in the autumn for our new show, Xenophon: Ubi Tunc Vox Inauditae Melodiae? Et Vox Inauditae Linguae?
