The Lighthouse Project at Hook Head

The Lighthouse Project is a collaborative artistic response to lighthouses around Ireland, curated by Dani Gill, where writers and artists from other mediums, take inspiration from the communities and landscape around lighthouses, producing poems, stories, songs, audio trails, installations and film work.

Inspired by ‘To the Lighthouse’ (Virginia Woolf), poet and project curator Dani Gill is drawn to exploring these outposts around Ireland, their origins, and stories, and how they are beacons, to both those at sea and on land.

Working with local artists Sasha Terfous and Richard Carr, Dani Gill has developed a site-specific project for Hook Head and Hook lighthouse involving sound and spoken word performance.

For this year’s Culture Night on Friday 22 September 2023, this work will be performed for the first time to the general public, where audiences will follow a guided soundscape experience into the lighthouse, culminating in a live performance by Sasha Terfous.

Booking essential and available from 1st Sept 2023
