Galway 2020’s Small Towns Big Ideas project, The Other: Together presents Ballygar SHOUTS, a live and participative performance created by the people of Ballygar.
This event has been devised from the creative activities undertaken in the past six months with young people and adults across the Ballygar area. As part of the project, The Other: Together asked local people to throw their voices forward for future generations, to discover who the people of Ballygar were in 2019. It will answer the questions, ‘Who lived here? What kind of place was it? Did they pull together as a community? What stories did they have to tell?’
Expect a performance of words and sounds that celebrates the past and reflects the present.
This event, hosted and co-produced poet Margaret Hannigan Popp with sound technologist Armand Golden, will take place in the newly erected bandstand in Ballygar Market Square on Friday, 7 June from 8pm.
