Living in Donegal is a socially engaged exhibition project starring twenty seven people who live in County Donegal, Ireland. It features a snapshot of the lives and stories of these individuals in 2020.

Each person tells their story to you. Through these stories, a bigger picture may emerge of life in Donegal. You are invited to meet each person as they tell you a little about their lives and experiences on their own terms, through words and pictures. People talk about their immediate and extended families, their work, their ‘reason for being’ and just what they enjoy about living in Donegal today.

Our galleries may still be closed to the public for now but we invite you to visit the Regional Cultural Centre, Letterkenny virtually and meet some of the people that make Donegal a special place to live.
