Culture Night is tomorrow, here are some of the events you can still attend

With online events as well as in-person ones around the country, there’s something for everyone on Friday September 17.

A celebration of culture around Ireland, Culture Night encompasses thousands of events across many disciplines of arts and culture, from music to photography. The Arts Council work with local organisations to put together this coordinated event, and this year there will be a mix of in-person and online events, all taking place tomorrow, September 17.

Some of the in-person events have sold out, but there are still plenty to choose from. Here are just a few that are still available. Check out the Culture Night website for the full schedule of events.

Jewellery demonstration, Cork
Designworks Studio in the heart of Cork city will host an in-depth demonstration about contemporary handcrafted engagement and wedding rings. From 6-8pm.

Weaving demonstration, Dublin
The Fumbally Stables will host a demonstration from The Liberties Weavers, a community group dedicated to bringing weaving back to the Liberties, which was once at the heart of Ireland’s textile production. From 5-9pm

Famine memorial, Omagh
At the Ulster American Folk Park in Omagh, ‘1845: Memento Mori’ is a Famine memorial by Seattle-based Irish artist Paula Stokes. Consisting of 1,845 handblown glass potatoes, it has taken 15 years to complete. No set time.

Mindful photography experience, Naas and online
Join ArtBeat and learn how to focus on the present by capturing photographs mindfully. This experience is not about taking ‘good’ pictures, it is about becoming aware of your surroundings and engaging with the natural world in a new way. Choose from an in-person event in Naas, 6.30-7.30pm, or online at any time.

A Mixed Media Night of Words, Threads and Song, online
Mountmellick Embroidery Museum will join with the Yarnbombing Group in a celebration of the heritage of textiles in Mountmellick. Pieces will be displayed accompanied by song and spoken word performances from local musicians and poets.

Leather demonstration, Kildare
In Kildare town, leather atelier De Bruir will allow visitors to visit its studio and view the collection of leather bags and accessories being handmade by Garvan de Bruir. 4-9pm.

Music and light installation, Galway
An atmospheric audio-visual experience within the grounds of St Nicholas’ Church, Nightvision is a performance by Give Us The Night. Ambient, electronic and experimental sounds will play alongside a special light installation curated by Brendan Savage, the artistic director of Galway Festival of Light. This will illuminate the church and surrounding area to otherworldly effect. 8.15-11:30pm

Festival of workshops, Dublin and online
Culture Night at the National Design and Craft Gallery in Dublin will host a festival of workshops and creative activities for all ages, both online and in the beautiful historical setting of the Castle Yard, with live musical entertainment. 5-8pm
