Online event: Operation Edna

FBI+ A in Association with Live-Art Ireland

A 2 hour live art extravaganzer

‘What’s old, really old? Imagine Edna, Methuselah’s mum outliving her son. Landscape does that, what about artefacts? How can 4 artists from Tipperary and 4 older artists from across southern UK tell each other stories about objects, places, and living a long life? How can the landscape give us shelter in this time of 5 km walks?’

This project is at the invitation of The Tipperary Arts Office for Bealtaine 2021
