Féile an tSolais Festival of Light

By Paul O'Connor


The inaugural Féile an tSolais Festival is a family orientated Arts Festival that will transform the heritage town of Listowel into a spectacular lightscape, creating narrative trails, exploring new forms of art that merges with technology and science.

The festival embraces diversity & culture, nurturing artists by creating a platform to engage with the local community and raise awareness about plastic waste and other environmental issues, inspiring change through art.
The highlight of this year’s festival will be the Forest of Light an immersive lightscape installation made from sustainable and recycled materials that takes you through the Garden of Europe in Listowel Town Park.

The budget for this years festival is as follows:
Forest of Light 5k
Lantern Making Workshops and Parade 3k
STEAM workshops 2k
Artist fees and expenses 2k
Marketing and Admin 5k

Money raised through Fund it will help to cover many of these costs and will help make the festival the best it can be. Materials and lights need to be purchased for the Forest of Light to make it bigger and brighter. Artists’ fees and expenses need to be covered, programmes and posters printed and distributed around Kerry, advertising and media coverage needs to be secured... The list goes on.

Féile an tSolais - Festival of Light committee is run by a dedicated group of local volunteers, artists, teachers and technologists as well as a financial officer to ensure that we get the best bang for our buck.

Weather is always a risk in Ireland, but don't let this dampen your spirits, Féile an tSolais has plenty of exhibitions, poetry readings and indoor installations to keep everyone happy.

Because this is the first year of the festival Fund it will be our main source of income and your contribution will ensure that this festival gets off to a great start. The festival is supported by Kerry Arts Office and Kerry County Council as well as my own personal contribution to get the festival started.

By contributing to Féile an tSolais - Festival of Light you’re not just guaranteeing yourself the best weekend out of the year - you’re supporting the creativity and careers of dozens of talented artists and creating a showcase for Ireland’s creative talent.
