Once again this year, the Centre Culturel Irlandais is delighted to participate in Ireland’s annual celebration of the arts.

Culture Night 2021 is a lovely opportunity to combine the opening of CCI’s new exhibitions Mise en scène by Cecilia Danell and Eamon O'Kane, and Trouver la source : trésors de la musique sacrée de la Gaule à Solesmes, a short programme of early music by Catherine Sergent and Franco-Brazilian mezzo-soprano Caroline Magalhăes at 7pm in the Chapel, a mini electro-pop concert by the trio A Lilac Decline at 8 pm in the courtyard, and the chance to take part in The Live Drawing Project all evening!

The Live Drawing Project is a real-time digital journey bringing Ireland and France together to share in an interactive drawing session. CCI will videoproject drawings made by you, using your phone as a drawing pad. Draw with all the other participants in France and Ireland and watch your creations appearing live together! In partnership with the Embassy of France in Ireland. Participate here : https://thelivedrawingproject.com
