A PARTICIPATORY PROJECT WITH GROUND UP ARTISTS COLLECTIVE ARTISTS: MAEVE COLLINS, MONICA DE BATH AND JULIE GRIFFITHS The Bealtaine at Home, Age & Opportunity Commission 2020 in partnership with Galway City Council, Clare County Council and Roscommon County Council. Tar Isteach is informed by a series of meetings, workshops and interactions with ‘New Irish’ residents and citizens in Salthill, Galway City, Lisdoonvarna, Co. Clare and Ballaghaderreen, Co. Roscommon. It draws on the experience that each artist brings, folding these over with the artisanal skills and cultural perspectives of a diverse range of participant groups both native and New Irish. Embracing the Bealtaine theme of ‘Hospitality’, it interrogates the principle that it is only in our encounter with ‘others’ that we can truly see and recognise ourselves.
