“The Bealtaine Festival takes place each May throughout Ireland and involves thousands of participants in every art form. The ancient festival of Bealtaine or Beltane (held on May 1), marked the midway point between the spring equinox and the summer solstice, and heralded the start of summer. For the last 20 years Ireland has marked the occasion with a national celebration of creativity as we age.
Not to be held back by the current restrictions, Uillinn: West Cork Arts Centre, together with Age and Opportunity and Cork County Council Arts and Library Services, are bringing our exhibition to you at home. This Bealtaine exhibition celebrates the creativity of our community hospital residents who create artwork all year round through the Arts for Health Partnership Programme, West Cork.”
