The absence over the last few weeks is due to it being the end of the semester and having a million and one things to do. I’ll be back to regular posting next week. (And have a few more images to show, too). This time it’s “Attend Tornoto Internatonal Film Festival“. This takes place every year in September and looks incredible. I’m trying to convince myself that going next summer is a good idea… The films that won awards at this year’s festival are here. Their Youtube channel page is here, where you can watch trailers and previews.
Have you ever been? Did you like it? Would you go again?
This week it’s “Attend Border’s book festival”. It’s a book festival that takes place every July in Melrose, Scotland. They have poetry and fiction readings and an artist-in-residency programme (which I might apply for next year ;)).
I’ve had an uber busy weekend, from working to seeing the new exhibition in the Gallery of Photography to hanging my own photographs in a group exhibition so I’ve only got time to post about this series now. I’m sitting in my room, listening to the rain batter the window outside so I thought I might as well post this now. So sorry about it being a couple of days late!
#2: Celebrate folk traditions by attending Feile Iorras
Feile Iorras is an annual international folk festival held in Dublin in July.
“One of the main aims in setting up the Feile was to promote integration and understanding between the people of Erris and various communities throughout the world. This is done by inviting groups from around the world to take part in the festival and to maximize contact between the groups and the people of Erris during the Feile.”
