On Saturday, 15th September 2012, the streets of Limerick will come alive to welcome both visitors and native Limerick people alike to the inaugural Elemental Arts & Culture Festival.
The festival encompasses the arts in all their guises, from interactive street art, dance and short films, to street performers and a talk on a very special lost local hero.
The day is designed to keep everybody happy. Start the day at the People’s Park at 10am with laughter yoga followed by tai chi and dance.
Go back to school from 12pm – 3pm at the Frank McCourt Museum for puzzles, funny portraits and all things fun-related. No 1 Pery Square plays host to the Lady Heath talk at 2.30pm.
Moving down to Bedford Row and Thomas Street, which will be the main hub for street activity, there will be local actor Myles Breen with his tea dance.
From 11am – 4pm, the Hunt Museum will showcase a number of skilled craftsmen and women, from a woodturner to a farrier and a Limerick lace maker, shining a light on these forgotten skills.
Helena Enright, with her ‘River Shannon Project’ will gather information at Arthur’s Quay Centre during Elemental to present in a ‘Theatre of Testimony’ reading later that evening while Behind the Scenes Film Network Group will feature an installation of short films on the theme of the elements.

The George Boutique Hotel
will host a series of short films each relating to one of the elements, from 12pm to 2pm in the hotel. All the films have been supplied by the film makers and members of the Behind The Scenes
group, based in Limerick and serve the midwest.
So for one day only it promises to be a festival not to be missed.
Hope to see some of ye there.
