The New School at TEST SITE

What a pleasure it was to host the talented generation of performers that are "The New School". In collaboration with Stevie Grainger, we were lucky to host live performances from Iris, Mel Maryns, Alicia Olaniran, Brinda Irini & Noreen Angozi. This performance was the first of our 2022 collaboration with The New School at TEST SITE. What does it mean to be an emerging, youth performer in Cork City? Further events, funded through Cork City Council's Placemaking Fund will soon be revealed. Watch this space.

Sawmill – Site Visit

Walking Tours

That’s a wrap for TEST SITE Walking Tours. The last tour took place on Saturday and we want to thank all the speakers and attendees who took part. The walks included local heritage, herbalism, archaeology, urban planning, ecology and social art: all invaluable strands for interpreting, inhabiting and reimagining our city. They were guided by some very knowledgeable and generous people. Míle buíochas to Colin Rynne, Jo Goodyear, Elena Turk, Brendan O’Sullivan, Eoin Lettice and PLoT.
