Earagail Arts Festival in association with An Anchor Ensemble presents

No Borders No Nations: Inch Landings

Event Description

In an era of increasing isolationism and restrictions on individual and artistic liberty, Earagail Arts Festival in partnership with An Anchor Ensemble has commissioned eight artists, writers and broadcasters from Ireland and the UK to perform short readings examining the theme of migration and freedom of movement in each of the four bird hides along the path of the long gone tracks of the Derry to Letterkenny railway line.

Each of the hides will host two readings from artists from Ireland and the UK examining the theme of migration and freedom of movement.

Artists include Stephen James Smith, Will Carruthers, Stephen McCauley, Phil Ruddock, Abby Olivera, Niall Ó Mianain, Dr Liam Campbell plus work by writer and cocurator JP Conaghan, read by Francis Harkin.

Times:

  • Tooban Hide: 1pm – 1.30pm
  • Pumphouse Hide: 2pm – 2.30pm
  • Tready Hide: 3pm – 3.30pm
  • Farland Hide: 4.30pm – 5pm
