The Circle of Wonder Inishowen will bring you an afternoon sit-down outdoor event, like none other! While you sit in Circle you will hear Sound Healing Instruments, new songs and before sunset we’ll all dance a new ceilí circle dance.

All will be invited to keep the rhythm by clapping and playing small rhythm instruments. Also as part of this unique event we shall be creating yarn and will weave the new thread into a co-created fabric! Also the mood of the day will be illustrated by artists painting live at The Circle of Wonder.

The location is in Moville at the Mullan HOPE Centre – where HOPE stands for Hub of Positive Energy. It’s a place where community has supported each other over the past couple of years. Our sincere gratitude for Geraldine Mullan (who is now the Community Contributor Individual of the Year Winner (Derry Journal)) for providing the peaceful place for this new event.

This is brought to you by Kathleen O’Hara Farren of The Edge School .net in Inishowen. “With the intention to bring the Colour and Healing Sounds to the area as well as bring more opportunities to the youth here, I received funding for #LiveLocal event supported by Donegal County Council and Department of Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport and Media. With this project, I am returning to work in the local community and am integrating all me experience with Home Education and Self-Care to bring new creative culture to Inishowen. The Inishowen Summer Gathering of 2005, which I initiated, has similarities with The Circle of Wonder. I’m most grateful to all who have given this project such generous support.” says Kathleen.
