Dance, photography, paintings and much more were part of the 14th edition of Culture Night. The event took place in 35 cities all over the country, offering several cultural options for all ages and preferences.
Standing up for climate change actions
At the same day when a global strike brought over 4 million people to the streets protesting over climate change, Irish children also stood up.
Crann Climate Action project, which aims to plant one million trees with the help of Irish children, offered attendees a glance of their ambitious goal.
Alongside with information, the project’s young artists have also brought poetry (a.k.a. poeTREE) and the young artists from Earth ArtisTREE.
Hosted by Patagonia, the event was dedicated to create awareness regarding the importance of immediate actions linked to global warming.
Quiet at the back
Also part of the Temple Bar cultural spots, the Gallery of Photography has dedicated last Friday to Culture Night.
The award-winning photographer Mandy O’Neill has work registering young students in Dublin schools for over a decade, resulting in the exhibition Quiet At The Back.
Trying to show the changes faced by children and teenagers, O’Neill also offers a perspective of how the financial global crisis has affected them, while having or not opportunities and aspirations can define the course of their lives.
Culture Night takes place in Ireland every year since 2006. It has escalated over the years, with 400.000 people visiting the event around the country during the most recent editions.
