Féile an Earraigh 2017

22 February 2017

St Mary’s is proud to join with Féile an Phobail, Ireland’s biggest community arts festival and summer school, as they present their Spring Festival, Féile an Earraigh, which will take place in venues across Belfast from 3-18 March 2017.

This year Féile an Phobail have partnered with the Respect Human Rights Film Festival and in its inaugural year have worked to produce a programme that offers a diverse range of events, offering a wider understanding of human rights subjects, such as immigration, asylum, women’s rights, war and conflict, mental health, healthcare, austerity and disability issues.

As a key partner St Mary’s is set to host over forty-five screenings, debates and discussions, not to mention an evening with the legendary Christy Moore, who, in conjunction with Tar Isteach, will play a concert at the College on Wednesday, 16 March 2017.

Féile an Phobail remains committed to playing a leadership role in exploring and encouraging change, providing a unique approach to dramatising the different energies and opportunities of shared living. St Mary’s is proud to support Féile an Phobail and to join with them to reflect and to confidently look forward.
