Age & Opportunity’s Bealtaine Festival, in association with the Arts Offices of Wexford County Council and Waterford City and Co. Council are pleased to announce an exciting new arts initiative in the South East.

The three organisations have come together to commission a new work by Wexford based artist Alanna O’Kelly, known for highly experimental, cross disciplinary work.

This new commission titled ‘Liminal States’ has been developed over the last year through an immersive collaborative creative process, and builds on earlier bodies of work. Alanna has worked closely with people living in Direct Provision Centres in County Waterford and also with members of The Quay Notes Choir in County Wexford to explore themes of ‘Hospitality, Hosting and Belonging’.

This process included intensive research, Fine Art printmaking workshops, audio and sound workshops, discussions, debates and story sessions involving collaborations with South East based practitioners; artist Anthony Lyttle, artist and writer Brian Garvey, choreographer and movement artist Libby Seward, musician and composer Pol Brennan, Elaine Winch, Director of The Quay Notes Choir and artist Pavlina Kubelkova.
