Culture Night moves online but fun still assured

Mayor of Kerry, Cll rPatrick Connor-Scarteen, and Arts Officer Kate Kennelly get ready for Culture Night

KERRY is preparing for a Culture Night with a difference.

The annual celebration, planned for Friday, September 18, will this year take place online to ensure public safety while still providing arts and cultural groups the opportunity of showcasing their work to the public.

The online Kerry visual artists’ showcase will feature a panoramic view of the gallery on @KerryCoArts page from 6.00pm on the night and there will also be images of the artists’ works, speeches and access to the exhibition catalogue.

The Fanzini Brothers will be online with a visual extravaganza full of their signature flair and fun.

The County Museum has taken a number of events online already this year and Culture Night will be the same with music and tours available from the museum’s website on the night.

“It’s a credit to arts and culture groups in Kerry that they are adjusting and adapting to these strange circumstances we are in,” said Kerry Arts Officer Kate Kennelly.

“I would urge people to virtually drop in to as many events as possible on Culture Night and show their support via views and clicks and likes until the time comes again when we can show our appreciation with applause.”

Mayor of Kerry, Cllr Patrick Connor-Scarteen has encouraged everyone to try this new way of experiencing Culture Night.

“Online events give more people the opportunity to take part safely and enjoy what Kerry arts and culture has to offer,” he said.
