Galway 2020 Hub: Cén Fath Gaillimh – Why Galway?

Time: 5-7pm | Address: Unit 15, The Cornstore, Middle Street, Galway, Ireland | Contact: 085 745 6887



Galway is home to artists and creative people from all over the world. But why did they decide to move here, and to stay here, and what do they think of Galway now? Film–maker Tomás Conway and producer Mattie Hynes wondered why and made a short film about it. Breandan O hEaghra asks the questions of four super Galway resident artists Claire Louise Bennett, Andrew Flynn, Harriet Leander and Joe Boske in this charming and original film, shown in Galway city for the first time ever. Appropriately the film will be shown for Culture Night at the Galway 2020 Hub, the base for Galway’s winning bid for European Capital of Culture 2020.
