FESTIVITY AND PUBLIC ART
Public artworks for celebrations and festivity compliment outdoor seasonal events. Coming together to mark the passing of summer, daylight and the growing season is traditionally associated with the Irish festival of Samhain. Also known as the Celtic New Year, the rituals of the season incorporate letting go and aspiring to new hopes and aspirations for the coming months of darkness. Playground gatherings and processions within therapeutic settings incorporating artworks, physical actions, poetry and music have been produced to celebrate Samhain.
