Mayo County Council Arts Office is working with more than 20 active retirement associations throughout Mayo during Bealtaine 2009. Workshops with professional facilitators will take place in numerous art forms including dance, drama, creative writing, music and memory, samba and percussion, storytelling, and visual art.
Throughout the month-long festival there will be music recitals, theatre performances, and special talks. In addition a short film by Michael Fortune, commissioned under Mayo County Council’s Percent for Art scheme, will be screened for selected ARA groups in the county and it will also be screened at Féile na Tuaithe. A two day seminar — EnVisAge — will also take place over the month. For more information contact Mayo Arts Office on 094 904 7558/ 47560 or e-mail [email protected].
