Farm Walks - Creative Communities on a Shared Island

Farm Walks

Creative Communities on a Shared Island

Leitrim County Council and The Dock are working with artists and farmers to host six creative Farm Walks in 2024.  The project is co-created with The Leitrim Sustainable Agriculture Group and the Ulster Wildlife Farmers’ Group in Fermanagh and funded through the Creative Ireland Shared Island Programme.

Each Farm Walk will feature a talk by an invited artist whose work resonates with that farm, its creative potential, heritage or other special characteristics. Through the Farm Walks, the partners aim to build further capacity for cross-border cooperation, to highlight common farming and environmental interests, to showcase the common themes of biodiversity, farming in harmony with nature, water quality, and climate action, and to explore the common ground between farmers and artists.

This project will build on new and existing partnerships and will deepen the goodwill, friendship and creative collaboration that exists between Leitrim and Fermanagh. The participating farmers are Yvonne Browne, Michael McManus, Frank Whitney, John Flynn, Paddy McGurn, Carol Durkin, Gavin Durkin, Aidan McGovern and Trevor Irwin.
