Congratulations Darren!

Bit of a milestone this morning as I completed a project five months in the making. For whatever reason, I got it into my head last year that I wanted to make a documentary for submission to film festivals before I hit 40 (Oct.) Truth be told I've wanted to do this for a long time. Could I have guessed in 2016 as I listened to Pat Divilly speak at an event in Dublin that he'd be the subject of my documentary four years later? Nope. I'm thankful to Pat for trusting me to tell his story in my own way and for being completely open to anything I wanted to do. Corny as it sounds it really has been an amazing journey. - Darren #proudday

We are delighted to announce Sustaining the Self, a virtual workshop for the arts and health community on 23 June. Led by artist Marie Brett, this workshop is designed to support self-care among those working in arts and health, particularly in the context of the seismic shift in practice since the introduction of Covid-19 restrictions. Free, registration via Eventbrite.

Sustaining the Self: Close Up: An additional workshop and tutorials led by Marie will be offered to a small group of practitioners with significant experience in arts and health. Registration for Sustaining the Self: Close Up is by application. The deadline for expressions of interest is 10 June.

Sustaining the Self Toolkits: Recognising that internet access is not universally available for a variety of reasons, a limited number of Sustaining the Self Toolkits, created by Marie Brett, will be available by post as an alternative to participating in the workshop online.

Sustaining the Self is organised by artsandhealth.ie/ Waterford Healing Arts Trust and Create, the national development agency for collaborative arts, and is funded by Arts Council Ireland and the HSE.

Cocooning residents at The Green Road in Mullingar had a wonderful treat recently when violinist Bozena Pannackal gave an impromptu recital in the garden of a friend who has been confined to home due to the lockdown. Polish-born Bozena - in this clip playing "Por Una Cabeza" from the tango scene in "Scent of a Woman" - thrilled residents and passers-by for three quarters of an hour in glorious sunshine.

Cocooning residents at The Green Road in Mullingar had a wonderful treat recently when violinist Bozena Pannackal gave an impromptu recital in the garden of a friend who has been confined to home due to the lockdown. Polish-born Bozena - in this clip playing "Por Una Cabeza" from the tango scene in "Scent of a Woman" - thrilled residents and passers-by for three quarters of an hour in glorious sunshine. In the spirit of "paying it on", Bozena's thoughts were with her own 80 year old mother in Poland and her 100 year old mother-in-law in India, who in their own countries benefit from the largesse of others.

Bealtaine Festival At Home has officially launched, bringing a taste of the festival to you online for the entire month of May! Bealtaine At Home honours the creative spirit of the festival with a wide selection of online activities to get involved in, and share with the older people in your lives.

They will be releasing a specially commissioned Bealtaine At Home video every Wednesday in May with Pom Boyd and The Windy Lady, who invites the viewer into her home to share her surreal thoughts on self-isolation, medication, her turkey family, pigs, racing cars, buses, the moon and Vladimir Putin (or the manager in Super Valu as she knows him).

Make sure you keep an eye on the Bealtaine Festival website and their page for information and updates: http://bealtaine.ie/

We've officially launched Bealtaine At Home!!

We are bringing a taste of the festival to you online for the entire month of May!

Bealtaine At Home honours the creative spirit of the festival with a wide selection of online activities that we want you to get involved in, and share with the older people in your lives.

We will be releasing a specially commissioned Bealtaine At Home video every Wednesday in May with Pom Boyd and The Windy Lady, who invites the viewer into her home to share her surreal thoughts on self-isolation, medication, her turkey family, pigs, racing cars, buses, the moon and Vladimir Putin (or the manager in Super Valu as she knows him).

“I started making this noise in rehearsals one day and The Windy Lady came into being,” Pom Boyd, Dublin born Actor, Performer and Writer, said. “The character is born out of how older people are typically portrayed, so I’ve made sure there is subversion, anarchy and feminism going on with The Windy Lady. She’s a perfect fit for Age & Opportunity as she challenges stereotypes. You’d never know it to look at her though, you have to get to know her.”

“During Covid 19 the Windy Lady is sharing her home schooling skills, looking after her family of turkeys and sharing her collection of photographs with us, so I hope you’ll take a journey with her in these videos throughout May,” Pom said.

We’ll also be getting imaginative with artist Brian Cooney and his photography club online; we’ll be discussing literature with our book club with the help of writer Mia Gallagher and hearing from authors Michael Harding, Catherine Dunne and Neil Hegarty; we’ll be asking choirs to send in their videos from isolation to celebrate the Dawn and Dusk Choruses with us and much more.

In 2019 Age & Opportunity ran six artist residencies in care settings around Ireland. This May, the six artists were due to revisit their care setting for a Bealtaine celebration. This unfortunately is no longer possible, but the artists involved have all responded to this by creating an opportunity for wider engagement, inspired by their residency, including photography, drawing workshops, print at home pamphlets and videos, immersive video for those living with dementia and more. We will be sharing the creative activities of the artists involved on our website and social channels.
