This is a chance to see inside homes, meet the homeowners, architects, designers and builders behind the restorations, extensions and new builds; it is a weekend where we are encouraged to look at our built environment, our local, inherited and new built vernacular and consider its impact on our lives and landscape.
Through tapping into these homes, that are often hidden away down lanes and up hillsides and, through the generosity of the homeowners allowing the public to visit, the festival is able to open up debate, bring people and ideas together and inspire innovation and consideration for the future of rural living, building, planning, architecture and design.
This year we excited collaborated with the Dock Arts Centre in Carrick on Shannon the Leitrim Sculpture Centre and The Glens Centre. We are being generously supported by The Arts Council of Ireland, the Heritage Council, Irish Design, Leitrim Arts, Leitrim Tourism and Harnessing Creativity.
We programmed a weekend full of talks, excellent speakers, workshops, exhibitions and demonstrations, with the aim of stimulating and inspiring the weekend's particpiants. See an overview below:
