In mid-July a group of visual artists and writers will trek across the Ballygawley Mountains with archaeological writer and folklorist Padraig Meehan. Sliabh Da En, the ‘hill of two birds’, is rich in mythic narratives of the Cailleach Bhérra as well as of archaeological interest. This landscape is connected by the sun’s alignment to the central passage tomb, Listoghil, at Carrowmore.
The artists will return to The Factory Performance Space which will become a studio to make work inspired by the trek over the course of the week. An exhibition, presenting the visual, vocal and written responses to the experience will be held in the Factory on the 27th July at the end of the week-long collaboration.
