Small Towns Big Ideas: Galway 2020 European Capital of Culture coming to Loughrea

Galway 2020 European Capital of Culture coming to Loughrea

Galway 2020 European Capital of Culture coming to Loughrea Library, on Tuesday 6 February 2018, from 7pm.

“Small Towns Big Ideas” is your chance to make cultural waves in your community and to be part of making Galway 2020 a global success.

Galway will be the European Capital of Culture in 2020, a year in which hundreds of projects and events will take place bringing audiences and artists together from near and far in a celebration and exploration of our three central themes – language, landscape, and migration.

“Small Towns Big Ideas” is one of our flagship programmes. It celebrates “Meitheal” – the ancient Irish tradition of coming together for a common purpose, working together to ensure that all succeed in achieving a goal. Any community from Galway City and County can apply for support to work with artists or cultural practitioners on projects.

Call into Loughrea Library, Church Street on 6 February to find out more, or view galway2020.ie
