Join us for a workshop that invites you to respond to Seamus Heaney’s work creatively – through words, drawing or any form of artistic expression! We will focus on one of Heaney’s poems, looking at the drafts as well as the finished piece. You will then be invited to respond to lines from the work in whatever way you choose.
Seamus Heaney achieved great success as a poet, playwright and translator, transforming the ordinary world into extraordinary words. In 1995, Heaney received the Nobel Prize for Literature which was awarded to him for works of ‘lyrical beauty and ethical depth’. This exhibition, in the Bank of Ireland Cultural and Heritage Centre on Westmoreland Street, explores Heaney’s life and work through the archive he delivered to the National Library of Ireland in 2011.
This workshop will engage with Heaney’s creative process, and encourage participants to explore their own creativity. Suitable for all abilities; beginners, artists, poets, and dreamers alike! Join us to ‘Listen Now Again’ and express yourself in a supportive environment.
