Rekindle micro-festival reconnects generations and celebrates traditional skills

COMMON Knowledge is a non-profit social enterprise set to empower people with the skills for a more sustainable life. This free intergenerational festival will feature live traditional music, poetry readings, a story-telling workshop and live craft demonstrations.
Local makers from the older community will demonstrate and share their skills in knitting, rug making, wood-turning, foraging and horse shoe making. Aindreas de Stack will be running a story-telling workshop with the Doolin Folklore Group featuring local traditional musicians.
Erin McClure, co-founder of Common Knowledge social enterprise running the festival, says that, “If we are going to learn to live in a way which treads lightly on our planet, we have lots to learn from our elders. They were masters at living within their means, learning to ‘make do’, making and creating what they needed and supporting each other as a community.”
Rekindle, a one day free event takes place at The Courthouse Gallery, Ennistymon this Sunday May 15 from midday. Tickets
