The team at the RCC once again offer something special for all ages and interests this Culture Night with visual art, film and family workshops.
Upstairs in Gallery 1, the National Football Exhibition is made up of six zones, each designed to give you an overview of the various different aspects of football in Ireland. Visitors can explore memorabilia displays, interactive stations with videos, quizzes and an opportunity to step up to the mic and record your own commentary!
The Upstairs Foyer presents the Exhibition – ‘When I Was a Child’. Following on from the highly successful “I am Donegal” exhibition, Peadar Mc Daid invites 50 artists, photographers and writers to present work on small wooden 8”x10” panels that reflects something from their childhood – a memory, a place, a toy, a pet or a self portrait.
Accompanying Peadars’ exhibition in Workshop 3 is the Screening ‘ An Artist’s Work is Never Done’. Created by Peadar & his nephew David, this short film focuses on the working lives of a number of artists working in Donegal, offering insights into their thought process, work and surroundings.
Downstairs Gallery 2 & Foyer is where you will find ‘Donegal’s Atlantic Way’, an exhibition by Michael Sugrue. This is a unique collection of photographs and poems capturing Donegal’s natural and rugged beauty. The pictures tell a story of the unfolding of the day from dawn to twilight and beyond.
Workshop 1 will be turned into the Kids & Craft Drive-in Movie from 6pm – 8pm . Families are invited to drop in and build their very own car for our Culture Night indoor drive-in movie experience. Art facilitators will help kids to design and build a car using recycled cardboard boxes and art materials. Once your car is built it’s time to park up and enjoy a selection of short animated movies!
