Earagail Arts Festival is proud to announce that it will not be missing from your calendar of events this July!
While we will not host the 32nd festival in its traditional, physical form, Earagail Arts Festival will still be a highlight to look forward to.
Donegal’s premier summer festival will be brought to you via 18 digital events over the 18 days of our original dates of 9th to 26th July 2020.
In addition to this digital programme of new online and previously unseen archive performances, competitions and interactive creative works through our online channels, we are working with our partners and artists on a host of new artist development and audience engagement initiatives, to ensure we are still able to connect artists, audiences and the community in Donegal to the rest of the world.
We will keep you up to date via our website, social media channels and, first and foremost, through our newsletter.
The decision to go digital for 2020 was made this week following current public health guidelines and after considerable deliberation and consultation with artists, funders and stakeholders, festival management.
Our main priority is the safety and health of our community, audiences, artists, staff and volunteers. However, we are also committed to protecting the livelihood of artists, production staff and venues, in turn contributing to the sustainability of the arts sector to the best of our ability.
