Bealtaine Festival presents How Are You?, a new scent artwork by acclaimed visual artist and vocalist Ceara Conway designed in collaboration with olfactory artist Erin Quinn.
How Are You? was created in response to Viriditas, a recent album of contemporary and traditional healing songs by Ceara Conway, originally commissioned by Saolta Arts (and Saolta University Health Care Group) as part of The Deepest Shade of Green Programme for Galway 2020 European Capital of Culture.
As part of Bealtaine at Home 2021, Age & Opportunity in partnership with Family Carers Ireland, will send a sensory artwork to over 200 family carers caring for older relatives at home. Each package will contain a specially commissioned scent artwork, a link to Ceara’s Viriditas album and an invitation to attend ‘Of Scent and Song’ an online talk event exploring the fascinating relationship between scent, memory, music and wellbeing.
Commissioned and presented by Age & Opportunity, as part of the Bealtaine Festival.
You can listen to three tracks from Ceara Conway’s Viriditas album below.
