We’re delighted to announce that Bard Mythologies are returning to the Pearse Museum this Spring. If you’d like to find out more about Bard Mythologies and the workshops which will be taking place at the Pearse Museum, you are most welcome to come along for a FREE introductory session on Saturday 15th February from 11.00am – 12.30pm.
Sandy and Emma from Bard Mythologies tell us that through their workshops they endeavour to continue and expand on the Padraig Pearse legacy by… looking Irish Mythology and how it relates to the Ireland of today. Bard looks at the lessons to be learned from a largely forgotten oral tradition. Here the wisdom of a people is encoded in a body of cultural myths.
What Pearse did was to work with his students in a re-telling of the stories while exploring their contemporary relevance. We continue this legacy and approach in the same iconic and historic venue.
Today more of these myths are available to us. They have been recovered and translated. So in the tradition of Pearse we will explore myths such as the Tain, the Book of Invasions, Fionn, Oisin and Naimhand the Children of Lir and the fascinating King tales. And then ask, what might these mean today, what might they inspire in 21st Century Ireland.
So if you think you might be interested in participating, come along on Saturday 15th February! We’d love to see you!
