ESTABLISHED in 2014 with spur from Limerick City of Culture status, PLAN (Professional Limerick Artists Network) is the representative body for artists that acts as forum for issues to do with practice and management. Three years on, Riverfest this weekend presents the ideal platform for a public birthday party.

Secretary Joanne Ryan, herself an actress/ writer, says celebrations will open out at Milk Market from 12 to 4pm this Friday  29. “A number of things will be going on side by side. At the gallery space, there will be an exhibition of visual art by members Tony O’Loughlin, Jo Slade, Gillian Kenny, Jo Slade and Moya Ní Cheallaigh”.

On to locally made film shorts. “Chairperson Keith Bogue is co-ordinating a number of short films pop-up style around the market and these will be accompanied by locally made music videos. Among the films to show will be Maeve McGrath’s ‘Vanner’ and Keith’s ‘All Washed Up’.

“Moyross Community Drama will be selling vintage wear in costume to raise funds for works to The GAFF, and there will be storytelling, nail art and music”. Sounds fun. Interested parties can talk to PLAN members on the cultural strategy mission and join in activity. Email [email protected]
