    Be Our Guest! Hard Won Words:
    Screening and world café event with Deirdre O’Mahony

    Wednesday, May 8th    2 – 5pm
    The Parade Tower,
    Kilkenny Castle


    An invitation to older people from Kilkenny to join artist Deirdre O’Mahony for a screening of her film First Citizens Speak, a short film commissioned in 2016 by Bealtaine in which older citizens of North Clare speak about the memories, values and behaviours that were important in achieving a strong sense of contentedness in their lives.

    The screening will be followed by a Hard Won Words “Café” workshop to draw upon the combined wisdom of those present to surface ideas and priorities they have for engaging and enriching the cultural life of Kilkenny city and the South East Region, as Butler Gallery prepares to move to the historic Evan’s Home in 2020. The knowledge and experience that make First Citizens Speak such a powerful testament will provide the spark, the tea/coffee and cake will provide the sustenance, for the conversation.

    Please call Jean or Pauline on 056 – 761106 to book your place.
