“Writing Our Way to Brigit/Brigid” Awarded Brigid 1500 Grant

I am delighted to be part of Kildare County Council’s celebration of Brigit/Brigid. Kildare County Council has kindly awarded my project Writing Our Way to Brigit/Brigid a Brigid 1500 Arts and Creativity Grant.

People are forgetting the singularity of Brigid, Alice Curtayne said in mid-twentieth century Ireland but in today’s Ireland, the plurality of Brigid is what speaks most to us.

Writing Our Way to Brigit/Brigid is, firstly, a series of creative writing workshops which will take place in the heart of Brigid’s Kildare – Kildare Library, Kildare Town.

This series of workshops will focus on using symbols and representations of Brigit/Brigid as prompts for participants to explore and write about their own relationship to Brigit/Brigid. In each workshop, using words, phrases and artefacts from her archival research as springboards, I will guide participants in exploring, through writing and oral story telling, symbols of Brigit/ Brigid in their lives.

Writing Our Way to Brigit/Brigid will also feature an evening where participants will have the opportunity to perform/show their work before a live audience.

Further details, dates and booking details will be announced shortly!

Please see https://brigid1500.ie/Events/ for a list of community events that are taking place all over Kildare for 2023 and beyond.

With thanks to Kildare County Council for the Brigid 1500 Arts and Creativity Grant.
