“Mantles” is a collaborative project between Kildare writer Shauna Gilligan and Roscommon based visual artist Margo McNulty.

“Mantles” explores the themes of heritage and sense of place symbolising Brigid through archival artefacts and site visits and aims to create through words and images new representations of Brigid as an archetype of the sacred feminine.

The project outcomes are public reading/webinar, public workshops (creative writing, art) and the publication of creative work in collaboration with Arlen House. Workshops will be held in October 2021 as part of Kildare Readers Festival and in Roscommon Arts Centre.
