Creativity and Heritage

Saturday April 29th, 10am – 4pm Tullyarvan Mill – one of three workshops from the Ignite! Weekend by the Samhlaigh Arts Collective.

Heritage of the Heart – Dulra an Chroí is a workshop where
participants experience a harmonious co-creative circle which integrates both ancient and new tools & techniques. It’s practices and methodologies will support communities to produce quality ‘pop up’ participatory arts & culture events.

You will enjoy learning (through experience) a model of communication with a structure based on natures design. 

The activities will demonstrate how, with awareness, doing things at a slow pace can create deep and fulfilling connections. This is regenerative & revitalising with deep rooted foundations that bring forth your true nature and ability to see true nature.

During the day, we’ll walk, talk, sing and play. We will have a
look at maps that we might not have seen before – both in ourselves and of Inishowen. We’ll experience ways of navigating new ways of learning with natures design at the core. 

We’ll experience ways of navigating new ways of learning with natures design at the core. Pronouncing and understanding the deeper meanings of the Irish language placenames through singing will feature with our special guest, Seoirse Ó Dochartaigh. 

We anticipate that the music, river walk & Art of Hosting activities will be of use should you go on to host your own creative gathering.

“Being at home in yourself & in community” is our intention, as we nurture a conscious creative community of arts & culture in Inishowen and beyond. All are welcome to join this rare opportunity which may be foundational to co-operative events in the emerging new world! Inspired by the Acorn Model, Cultural Emergence, Social Permaculture, Belvaspata, the Art of Hosting, ATTUNE and Inis Eoghain.

Kathleen O’Hara Farren hosts Participatory Arts events. The Edge and Home Education have been her recent interests. “I’m happy to be offering some top techniques for self-care that bring vitality to your life and to those around you” says Kathleen. “Heritage of the Heart – Dulra an Chroí will introduce us to easeful event management. I look forward to seeing some colleagues, friends and new connections.” My life in Inishowen has been most interesting with projects like The Inishowen Summer Gathering, Creative Parenting, Anchor Arts Centre, The Circle of Wonder and family life here, on the land, by the sea.

Seoirse Ó Dochartaigh

Seoirse’s speciality is Gaelic song, poetry & story prefaced by synopses and translations in English if required. The songs are rendered simply through the pure acoustic essentials of voice and nylon-stringed guitar. He has accumulated a number of local songs and stories dating from Inishowen’s Irish-speaking past and has even set some of the legends to music.

All who attend the full workshop will receive a (hand-made) Heritage of the Heart badge.

Home School families and friends – 3 Craft & Care dates for details

Over three days, IGNITE! offers a series of workshops that tap into three fundamental sources of creativity:

nature, heritage and the playful human body.

The workshops are open to everyone, not only artists and creative practitioners.

April 28, 29 and 30 – Special days for CREATIVITY in Inishowen…. are you up for fanning the flames of this ‘ancient yet new’ fire?

Remember this? Igniting the central fire at the Inishowen Summer Gathering 2012! Celebrating Heritage, Creativity and all things Natural is always inspiring and available

I’ll be hosting the Saturday workshop with Seoirse Ó Dochartaigh where we will enjoy suimhneas agus nasc anam. Come for the walk at noon (if not the whole day – a lá nó deireadh seachtaine go leir)

These Craft & Care Sessions are so much more than making a craft item.  They are like a mini-retreat!  With a balance of quiet and outward expression these gatherings appeal to sensitive yet strong ones!  I, Kathleen lovingly craft the event to ensure an enriching experience during which you may try something new and gain insights to support your evolution!  I’ve recently been described as a ‘social sculptor’ and am feeling into it with an amused smile!

During the hour (to an hour and a half) we learn and practice some centering techniques, have a little music and a chat on a given theme After learning ‘how to’ we sew or draw and then finish up with a new creation!

All ages may attend but these are geared towards the child within the adult (it is central to enjoying life)!  Suitable for adults who are interested in nurturing a wholesome life which has in it’s foundation the attitudes of Love, Praise and Gratitude / Grá, Mol agus Buíochas.  All of The Edge School .net activities are for anyone who is serious about consciously creating the real world that is now possible – and that is from the inside out and only possible through enjoyment, fun and innocence.
