Join a day of free
activities at Fort Dunree
ARTLINK's new ‘Sea Change’
project, a pioneering initiative aimed at exploring the
coastal identity of Ireland through creative
collaboration, is set to host a day of free public
activities at Fort Dunree on Sunday, 12th November 2023.
The new project, which brings together artists from
Donegal and the Causeway Coast & Glens, is a
groundbreaking long-term endeavour that envisions an
ambitious series of events spanning three venues on the
island of Ireland; Artlink Fort Dunree, Roe Valley Arts
& Cultural Centre and an additional venue yet to be
disclosed. The project has united six talented artists,
chosen for their work's relation to the sea, the coast,
or maritime heritage.

The showcase will be open
to the public from 8th-15th November with a day of free
public participation on Sunday 12th from 10:30am to 4pm.
Writer Bernie McGill will lead a creative writing
workshop starting at 10:30am. It is essential to book a
place on this as it may entail leaving the venue. Other
workshops include a hot glass demonstration by Andrea
Spencer, a drawing ‘Meitheal’ with Cathal McGinley,
sound recording with Cliodhna Timoney, an artist talk by
painter Nicola Nemec and stories from the sea by Tim
