31 Jul – 2 Aug Aperture Festival Corrymeela Centre, Ballycastle

Aperture Festival

31 Jul – 02 Aug 2015
Corrymeela Centre, Ballycastle

I’ll be giving a workshop on Saturday at 3pm and reading on Saturday night at 7pm. I’ll be taking part in a panel discussion on Sunday at 5.

Aperture is a festival of diversity, arts, debate, politics, faith, music and celebration.

Poets, Musicians, Politicians, Circus Acts, Theologians, Debates, Games, Food, Surprises and Unexpected Opportunities…The Aperture festival will be a wonderful and temporary community for three full days on the north coast.

This festival, marking Corrymeela’s 50th anniversary, will give shape to a wide range of ideas and the authentic personal stories behind Corrymeela, placing it all in the context of a celebration of fifty years of community.

The family friendly festival will feature local artisanal food and as well as the stunning views of Corrymeela’s six–acre North Coast site.

We will celebrate local and international peacebuilding. We will celebrate our common ground and our differences and we’ll explore how far we’ve come and how far we have to go. We will listen to voices often ignored and in a space of celebration, dialogue and diversity talk about our differences and celebrate the amazing work of community.

Aperture will be engaging, fun, provocative, refreshing and inspirational.

Aperture will also be a party. Bring your dancing shoes. Bring your politics. Bring your opinions. Bring your hope. Bring your friends. Bring your life. We’ll bring the rest.
