Travelling Voices premiere

Travelling voices

A great afternoon this week in Enniscorthy Library at the screening and launch of "Travelling Voices" - a 20 minute video filmed in July and August, 2022 highlighting the rich culture and heritage of the travelling community in Co. Wexford. The film, which was filmed and produced by Heritage in Schools Specialist Rachel Uí Fhaoláin (Ceol Mo Chroí) and Digital Storyteller/Filmmaker John Ó Faoláin (Traditional Archive Channel), explores the rich culture of the Travelling Community in Wexford. The film was funded by The Heritage Council through our Heritage in Schools programme.

Participating children engaged in hands-on learning with the two artists and very open discussions around further opportunities for the travelling community in areas of filming, sound, lighting, traditional song, storytelling, performance, recording/archiving etc.The learning outcomes included the development of important digital skills while exploring the importance of sharing and archiving the songs, language, customs & traditions which are passed onto the children from the older members of their families down through the generations.

The project was funded by the Heritage Council through the Heritage in Schools Summer Programme for 2022.
