We Built This City on Rock and Coal

May 17, 2024

A climate change, hopepunk comedy show, created by scientists, comedians and… you!

We Built This City on Rock and Coal brings scientists and theatre makers together for a co-created comedy show driven by hopepunk, climate research, music, and what matters most to the local community. It is a show that is fun for audiences, and good for the planet, based on the idea that every individual and their community can be part of a solution to climate change.

The show will preview with Arts in Action at University of Galway on 30 May at 1pm.

Research shows that caring for our local environment helps us care for the planet, so the events also include sustainability workshops and citizen science activities. Each live show holds space for audience members to speak up and/or be interviewed. These source materials are used by international improvisation experts to inspire scenes, songs and sketches that are unique to each show and community.

The venues range from arts centres to ringforts, and the project will also visit three islands off the coast of Ireland: Inishbofin, Arranmore, and Rathlin Island. By bringing shows to rural centres like Ionad Cois Locha, Interface Inagh, Wild Nephin National Park, and the Centre of Excellence for Climate Action and Sustainability in west Cork, the project aims to prompt discussion and change around environmental topics while finding local positive steps towards solving climate change.

We Built This City on Rock and Coal is co-created by Dr. Jessamyn Fairfield (award winning science communicator and performer) and Katy Schutte (global improvisation practitioner and author). They will partner with Dr. Gesche Kindermann, sustainability and conservation expert from the University of Galway, and storyteller Órla Mc Govern, among others. Audience stories about climate change and climate action will also be collected and shared online as part of the Caomhnú citizen science initiative.

More information including show dates and ticket links is available at http://webuiltthiscity.ie/

Case Study: Enhancing accessibility in Galway’s westend

May 15, 2024

Galway’s westend sought to improve accessibility to ensure inclusivity and equal access for everyone. With the support of grant funding from Galway City Council, the community embarked on a project aimed at enhancing accessibility through various initiatives, including the procurement of accessibility ramps, installation of a public defibrillator unit, provision of handrails for additional support, and the creation of inclusive signage. This case study delves into the success and impact of these endeavours.

Objective:

The primary objective of the project was to create a more accessible environment within Galway’s westend, thereby fostering inclusivity and enhancing the quality of life for individuals with disabilities or mobility challenges. The project aimed to achieve this by addressing key barriers to accessibility and promoting awareness of available amenities and facilities.

Initiatives implemented:

Procurement of accessibility ramps:

The grant money facilitated the purchase of additional accessibility ramps to be strategically placed in key locations throughout Galway’s westend. These ramps were designed to provide wheelchair users, individuals with mobility aids, and those with strollers or heavy luggage easier access to buildings and public spaces. By increasing the availability of ramps, the project aimed to remove physical barriers and promote independent mobility.

Installation of a public defibrillator unit:

Recognising the importance of emergency preparedness, a public defibrillator unit was installed in a central location on the canal.

Provision of handrails for additional support:

In collaboration with local businesses, handrails were installed to provide additional support for individuals with mobility impairments. These handrails were strategically positioned in areas where steps or uneven surfaces posed challenges to accessibility. By enhancing stability and support, these handrails promote confidence and independence among individuals with varying mobility needs.

Creation of inclusive signage:

To raise awareness and improve navigation for individuals seeking accessible facilities, inclusive signage was designed and implemented across the westend. These creatively crafted stickers designed by local artist Paul James Kearney , in harmony with the area’s aesthetic, indicate the presence of accessibility ramps within buildings. By incorporating visually appealing design elements, the signage not only serves a functional purpose but also adds a touch of creativity to the urban landscape.

Through strategic planning and collaboration, the grant-funded initiatives have significantly enhanced accessibility within Galway’s westend, making it a more inclusive and welcoming community for all. By addressing physical barriers, promoting awareness, and creatively integrating accessibility features, the project exemplifies the positive impact of community-driven initiatives supported by local authorities.

Galway’s westend serves as a model for other communities striving to create environments that are accessible, safe, and inclusive for everyone.

GAMMY- The Play

May 13, 2024

Gammy is a portrait of an Irish contemporary rural female, fuelled by unbearable pain and vicious rage. Developed at FRINGE LAB with the support of Dublin Fringe Festival, GAMMY is the love child of Andrea Arnold’s ‘Fish Tank’, Mark O’Halloran’s ‘Garage’, with a dash of Stephen King’s ‘Misery’. The story is set with all puppy fat, pimples, missing teeth at 31 and working in the same old shop. GAMMY is stuck. GAMMY never grew up. GAMMY got left behind. But today is different, today something is finally going to happen.

Lisa Regan provided excellent PR for GAMMY, a new play that premiered in The Project Arts Centre in Dublin. She expanded our audiences by publicising the play across national print and also radio interviews. We would highly recommend Lisa for her engagement, detailed approach and care she gives to her projects. Kate Finegan Writer

Summer of art at Ard Bia

May 9, 2024

Appreciation of light and all its textures focus of photography showcase

This June, Ard Bia will host Aoibheann MacNamara’s second photographic exhibition titled Dunganese- which is a coastal desert region in the south of England. This exhibition has a fixation on features in the natural landscape that gives context of time and location.

As an artist of photography, she works in automatic and lets the light largely dictate the work. This is by design and by its nature largely more bleached out like the barren landscape depicted throughout the pieces.

Long since mentioned in murmurs of elusiveness, Dungenese has often been the preserve of artists and writers – most notably the great Derek Jarmon.

His tar-washed yellow windowed hut of iconic standing is the big draw but from there, a bigger aesthetic story evolves. Nuclear power stations, fish huts, lighthouses, colourful fishing debris, signal stations and much more presents a set design for escapist theatre in the shape of time spent there and of time removed.

This body of work, created over several early morning windswept walks while staying at the fog signal house in March 2024, pays homage to the beauty of a place that is like a moonscape with the most evocative structures within that scape.

“The muted colours of the images are untouched and left in their bleached-out state in a nod to analogue film we could not change once shot,” explained Aoibheann.

For more information call into Ard Bia on the Spanish Arch. The summer exhibition series will continue in July with painter Jose M. Yagüe Manzanares who through his painting of photography displays a love letter through his craft to Ireland.

Welcome to the neighbourhood- Galway Food Tours launches a true Galway buzz tour

March 27, 2024

Ramble through Galway’s neighbourhoods to experience life like a local

To get to experience Galway as a local you must cross into all the neighbourhoods. Experience the coffee, the beers, a gig, theatre, the street art, a burger, the best pizza in Ireland (fact), fish and chips, dessert, and of course the people.   With all this in mind the award-winning Galway Food Tours has launched their neighbourhood walking tours through the city of the tribes.

Taking in the historic charm of Woodquay, the bustling city centre streets and Eyre Square, through the Latin Quarter, onto Galways westend and then out to Salthill, the Galway neighbourhood ramble tour will introduce little nuggets of social and cultural notes as well as enjoying a refreshment or two along the way.

From Woodquay to Salthill, every step promises a new and different discovery of people, food, and stories. Get ready to go on a new adventure as Galway Food Tours introduces its brand-new neighbourhood walking tour that dives into the heart of Galway’s unique city areas.

The city is surrounded by water with the River Corrib holding pride of place and quick fact- it’s the fastest flowing river in Europe, so the tour begins at the midpoint between the iconic Salmon Weir Bridge and the new pedestrian bridge. Here, the ramble begins into Woodquay where you will enjoy the river from another viewpoint at the Commercial Boat Club, pop in Hughes for a pint, an Oyster at Galways only Oyster Bar in McSwiggans or a quick flutter at the bookies next door, and who knows, you might just walk away with a smile and an extra fiver in your pocket! 

Take a stroll up to enjoy Eyre Square, where the bustle of city life intertwines with the city’s famous park scape. New opening Mary Mullens is offering an Asian inspired outdoor oasis with Galway style Gyozas on offer- a must. The history of Galway can be seen on every corner but a pop into the 800-year-old Kings Head on High Street to learn even more about how the town became a city with the addition of a small matter of a beheading right at the door of a very famous King!

Crossing the bridges into Galway’s westend, this place moves to a different beat than the rest of the city, which keeps high street chains at bay and allows independent boutique businesses to flourish. Many businesses have been here for generations and supply the needs of the bountiful restaurants and bars that have won awards around the world and stamped the area on the food map even if you will not always find it on a tourist map.

Speciality tea and coffee cafes with hidden sun traps and vintage clothing shops have recently changed the day time vibe but no day is complete without a trip to Galways oldest grocery store to see Ernie or a drink in the Small Crane which used to be a potato market.

Heading out to Salthill for some fresh sea air, it’s time for a coffee in Kali or a small nip of something stronger at Tribe Gin school followed by a trip to the slots or the casino at the iconic Seapoint.

“Galway has so much to offer but when we travel, we are easily just drawn to main attractions. Really though we want to know where the locals are and what it is that makes a place special- so the neighbourhood tour of Galway is just that. Every person coming to the city can then get a real slice of Galway life. We love all the people and stories as well as unique Galway offerings so we want to show and share these with as many people as possible,” explained Sheena Dignam of Galway Food Tours.

Tours run throughout the day from 11am and are priced at €30. Book now at www.galwayfoodtours.com .

Contemporary rural Irish story, GAMMY celebrates a final attempt in salvaging control of a discarded life

March 27, 2024

An Irish rural portrait of lost potential, inexpression, and female rage

GAMMY is the love child of Andrea Arnold’s ‘Fish Tank’, Mark O’Halloran’s ‘Garage’, with a dash of Stephen King’s ‘Misery’. The story is set with all puppy fat, pimples, missing teeth at 31 and working in the same old shop. GAMMY is stuck. GAMMY never grew up. GAMMY got left behind. But today is different, today something is finally going to happen.

Developed at FRINGE LAB with the support of Dublin Fringe Festival. In the words of singer/songwriter David Keenan, ‘It’s the ones who seem destined to get left behind interest me the most.’

Gammy is a portrait of an Irish contemporary rural female, fuelled by unbearable pain and vicious rage. Gammy is a tragicomedy, yet in its essence, it is a sensitive depiction of the impact of abuse and inexpression. Gammy is volatile, hostile when we meet her, she has reached a crisis point.

Written by Kate Finegan, directed by Laura Sheeran, performed by Eimear Keating, produced by Dani Gill House of Pluto, Lighting and Set Design: Zia Bergin Holly. Made with the support of the Arts Council of Ireland Theatre Project Award.

“I am inspired by the vulnerability and real presence of lost potential. I am interested in how inexpression and suppressed trauma can fester in the subconscious and lead to heinous actions.

“Rural Ireland has now become a melting pot of opposing generations, mixed cultures, and sexes. Gammy got left behind. She didn’t get her Leaving, she works in her Mum’s shop. She and her Mum are outcasts, living on the outskirts of town. Gammy is at war with herself, her self-disgust bleeds into her every day, into her relationships and how she sees the world,” explains writer Kate Finegan.

The location illustrates the conflict within Gammy’s inner and outer world. A small town that is growing vs Gammy’s inner turmoil narrowing in the decaying house/shop she lives in.

Gammy has watched everyone grow up, move out, and moved on and she is left here. She is confronted by the abusive and formative triggers of her past each day, which compound her trauma further. But not today, today Gammy is taking action.

GAMMY will open at The Project Arts Centre in Temple Bar on April 11th (3 shows) Tickets €18/€16 are available from www.projectartscentre.ie.

UK Film Festival Nomination for Galway’s Blue Teapot 

March 11, 2024

Galway’s Blue Teapot Theatre Company will represent Ireland at the BAFTA qualifying Oska Bright Film Festival(UK), screening three self-produced films on St. Patrick’s Day, Sunday 17 March, as part of Reel Ireland documentary strand.

Oska Bright is the world’s leading festival for films made by or featuring people with intellectual disabilities or autism. Held in Brighton, the annual event screens over one hundred films with Blue Teapot’s  documentary ‘Enquire Within‘ chosen to close the week-long festival and is nominated for an award in the Best Story of a Life category.  Screening with Enquire Within are two other Blue Teapot produced documentaries – Prophecy (2021) and My Light will Blind You (2022).

Award winning independent filmmaker Fionn Rogers directed all three films. Speaking about the projects, Rogers explained, “The three documentaries are all very different and very special in their own way. Enquire Within was the most rewarding to work on, because of how organic it was and how the concept grew so naturally from the ground up”.

The documentary stemmed from Blue Teapot’s Outreach projects in collaboration with Galway County Council arts office, with a strategic aim of creating more impactful, experiential, inclusive arts practise across the County. Filmed in Clifden and shot over 8 days, Enquire Within involved people from the area, in front and behind the camera.

“To give people the opportunity to explore their ideas and get them hands on with film equipment they had never used before was amazing to experience first-hand”.  The resulting documentary explores the subject of employment from the perspective of young people, seniors and those with disabilities living in Connemara.

Talking about his experience as a first time Assistant Director, Blue Teapot artist Paul Connolly expressed, “It’s such a great honour to represent Blue Teapot, Criost Linn and the Clifden people involved at Oska Bright this year”. Along with his colleagues, Connolly is looking forward to attending the festival having received support from Culture Ireland.

In other developments, recently appointed Executive Director Jane Parsons is delighted to announce the launch of a new Friends Scheme, inviting individuals and businesses to partner with Blue Teapot to help make a positive difference to the creative lives of the company’s artists. This investment will empower the company to continue making game-changing theatre and provide opportunities for artists with intellectual disabilities.
