Cultural Horizons

A Small Towns Big Ideas project
DATE 23 October to 1 November 2020
LOCATION Clifden and Galway City

Cultural Horizons celebrates the unique cultural connections between Clifden and Mexico. Officially twinned with the historic neighbourhood of Coyoacan in 2012, Clifden will be the site of a beautiful festival of art, music, heritage and food exploring Irish and Mexican culture.

Taking the shared ancient traditions of Samhain and Dia De Los Muertos the programme includes artistic installations in shop windows, musical performances, a very special Frida Kahlo exhibition, and a candlelit vigil at Clifden graveyard in the heart of the town.
