In the first Bealtaine commission of its kind, HOME is a collaborative project by poet Enda Wyley & visual artist Anita Groener working with Dún Laoghaire Active Retirement Group. Employing immersive imagery interwoven with text, this film poem interprets tales of home and belonging rooted in the conversations and generous sharing from the community collaborators. The film will be premiered as part of Strokestown Poetry Festival in May 2018 and will be toured to venues nationwide throughout the month. HOME is a Bealtaine Festival commission supported by Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council.
