Art and Food at the Claddagh

Something to do on Sunday…that’s not always usual, but this week there’s no excuse to get up and shake out of your head the remaining of last night’s hangover.

How would the arts scene be without the mecenas that promote, give support and organise fairs around the world, specially in Ireland? There is so much Arts and Crafts scene that it’s almost impossible to write all about it in one go. Luckily there’s always good-hearted associations helping them out and spreding the word around. This time is STM Food and Craft, an organisation that runs fairs around Co. Galway.


Beautifully made jewellery, original cute candles, ashtonising wooden pieces, new and cool knitting designs, delicious cakes and bread…anything that is handmade you can think of have a space this Sunday at the Food & Craft Fair. It always gives a good vibration to see that handmade crafts are still alive and kicking now more than ever.

Entrance is free but I wouldn’t go in there with my wallet empty…there will be so much awesome stuff that I’d regret not to have a cent on me, and at the same time giving support to all these  talented artists.

Sunday 28th April, from 9 am to 3 pm

My Place…of hidden talents

Imagine  that you have freedom to express yourself about memories of your everyday life… That’s what the  30 artists, from The Iris Learning Centre and the Kilcornan Arts Group of the Brothers of Charity Services Kilcornan, were working in throughout two years.

They will proudly show to the public the work of people from different and not always comfortable backgrounds, having discovered a wonderful way to express, create and interact with each other as well as with the public. They found the perfect opportunity to let people know about their concerns and problems that bumped into their lives. Some talented souls noone would know about if nobody have given them the chance.

The Iris Learning Centre is funded by Brothers of Charity together with VEC teachers, imparting classes of many different areas as drama, arts or computers amongst others with the aim to discover  hidden talents and help them share with others.


Get carried away with somebodyelse’s emotions…not will just open your eyes but your mind.

MY PLACE exhibition, at the Foyer and Arts Corridor in University Hospital, Galway.
