Turning our bad weather to good use, Hope it Rains | Soineann nó Doineann makes Galway the place to be because it rains and blows!


We want to effect a cultural change in our relationship with weather and invite people of all ages to join our projects to make Galway weather-proof and climate resilient. Weatherplay games and installations use the wind and rain to make outdoor play fun when the weather turns. Weatherproof Me! transforms wearers into fantastical characters bringing delight to rainy streets. Weatherbots renewable-energy artworks harness the weather to realise the potential of decentralised power – beautifully!

Throughout 2020, weather activated surprises will animate city and county, so check the forecast!

Created and curated by Ríonach Ní Néill, produced by Ciotóg & Milestone Inventive, commissioned by Galway 2020, partnered by NUI Galway, Galway-Mayo Institute of Technology. Weatherproof Me! co-curator Jeni Roddy
