A collaborative arts based project by Kerry Writers’ Museum & Fighting Words Kerry linking young and older people in the community through an interdisciplinary creative programme of storytelling, creative writing, traditional music & song, technological design and film workshops. Locally based professional writers, artists, musicians and film makers will be appointed to direct the workshops and oversee the production of the work created. The aim of the project is to share stories and create a performance based programme to connect the local community with their history, local environment, literary & cultural heritage, the spoken & written word and with each other. It will encourage the participants to study and appreciate the spoken & written word, the nature and power of performance and the mutable ‘living’ space that is their local museum. The project will culminate with a showcase event where participants will invite their families and their local community where the work produced will be performed and displayed. It will encourage the people living in Listowel and beyond to feel a sense of ownership of their museum and the rich cultural heritage of their region.
