24 January 2013: Pilgrimage - a cultural odyssey

Pilgrimage - a cultural odyssey

Pilgrimage - a cultural odyssey is a collaborative project connecting a diverse group of Irish, Icelandic and Greek musicians, visual and performative artists.

Pilgrimage is committed to excavating and decoding collective cultural identity drawing on mythology, folklore, pilgrimage, memory and the resilience of island spirit. Following the threads of the ancient Pilgrimage tradition, an experimental artistic collaboratory will be hosted in Sligo in 2013 to explore the relationship and resonances between interior and exterior landscapes. Artists include Kate Ellis, Caoimhín Ó Raghallaigh, Iarla Ó Lionáird, Seán McErlaine, Linda Buckley, Donal Dineen, Noeline Kavanagh, Myles O'Reilly, Róisín Coyle, Andri Snaer Magnason, Mikhail Karakis, Valgeir Sigurðsson & Daniel Bjarnson of Bedroom Community Iceland. Pilgrimage is curated by Kathy Scott (the ireland: iceland projct) and Aoife Flynn (asquared).
