This week’s theme is inspired by Brendan Kennelly’s poem, ‘Begin’. The first line is ‘Begin again to the summoning birds’.
Launch of Peter Sirr’s Intimate City
MoLI, in partnership with the Gallery Press, is delighted to host the launch of Peter Sirr’s new collection of essays, Intimate City. Broadcasting from MoLI, Sirr will be in conversation with journalist Frank McNally for the launch of this wonderful new publication.
Reflecting the writer’s long-standing attachment to and obsession with the Dublins of the past and present, Intimate City addresses the contemporary city but also the ancient walled city or the city mapped in 1756 by a French Huguenot or the one enumerated in 1803.
On this week’s Bright Sparks Creative Burst, Sarah Webb is inspired by the work of Chinese artist Cai Guo-Qiang who creates amazing art work using fireworks.
In today’s Creative Burst we will be looking at the wonderful world of nature. Sarah Webb takes inspiration from rain rhymes and haiku poetry and encourages you to be inspired by nature too!
