This year’s Culture Night will be celebrated by the Western Writers’ Centre (Ionad Scríbhneoirí Chailín Maude) with a cross-cultural event starting at 2pm at Galway People’s Resource Centre, Hynes Building, St Clare’s Walk, Merchants Road, Galway. Writing from the Travelling Community will meet with other contemporary writing and music to celebrate diversion in the city of Galway.
The event is free and everyone is welcome.
Master of Ceremonies for the readings will be Martin Ward, with writer Julia Sweeney, and poets Fred Johnston and Mary Ellen Fean. Music will be provided by Tulla, Co. Clare piper, Siobhan Hogan.
Some years ago, the Western Writers’ Centre’s Director, Fred Johnston, worked with Julia Sweeney and other members of the Travelling Community to create a play, which was subsequently broadcast on Galway Bay FM radio.
