Meath Culture night went on across the royal county from a concert in Dunshaughlin to Open Studio & Gallery in Duleek.

The goal of this is to connect people to cultural activities locally and nationally and it aims to open up pathways to ongoing engagement.

A large array of Events took place in Kells, Navan, Duleek, Dunshaughlin and Slane to commemorate Meath Culture night on 23 September. There was also an online filming event on Facebook live where stories were featured by the Meath Dresser Project.

An open air concert at Dunshaughlin coincided perfectly with its annual harvest festival that was taking place that weekend and on the same day.

Kells had a multicultural connection evening filled with traditional music, dance and spoke word from a variety of ethnicities and a music and tourism event in the courthouse.

Selma Daniels from Little Lion Dance Theatre performed Moving Words, a Story with Interactive Dance Performances in the Navan Solstice Arts Centre.

Other activities that took place in Navan include a Creative Corner for artwork with Lucy McKenna, Meath Music Academy celebration of their student’s talent, 

Duleek became home to an open studio gallery for Friday evening which took place at Shane Holland Design Workshops unit.

Slane held a with Shine, a local arts and crafts gift shop, celebrating local crafts featuring Cormac Noonan of Wolf Academy and the textile artist Jillian Gott.
