Tallaght Community Arts’ annual one act theatre festival for secondary schools in South Dublin County
Doors To Elsewhere
An inclusive theatre ensemble for adults with disabilities living in South Dublin County
UNWRAPPED '20 Shining a Light Festival is happening!
Shining a Light is a celebration of rebirth and renewal, using the symbolism of light. Unwrapped '20 is working with artists and local people to discover what is distinctive about the places and communities in and around South Dublin. Through art, film, animation, music and spoken word we aim to see them in a different light.
This year's festival starts with Bringing the Light, a film of spoken word, music and animation. The film will broadcast on the Unwrapped YouTube channel on November 25th at 7.15pm.
Tallaght Community Arts creates opportunities for artists and the people of South Dublin County to explore together the transformative and celebratory power of the arts for the wellbeing of all. Our work focuses on participatory arts, encouraging and supporting people of all ages to be involved in the making of art. We put people at the centre of a cultural process. We make work in the heart of the community; in schools, community gardens, football stadiums and individual people’s homes – as well as in designated arts spaces.
In accordance with National Government directive in relation to Covid-19 and in accordance with health and safety guidlines for the health and safety of our staff, audiences, visitors, participants and artists. Tallaght Community Arts will extend its closure subject to further directives. All scheduled events during this time will be postponed with alternative dates to be determined. Thank you for your understanding and consideration in this matter
