Cork Sound Fair
Date: Friday 23rd March - Saturday 24th March
Place: St. Peter's Cork
Cork Sound Fair is a new, non-profit arts and music event kicking off in Cork city in March 2018. The aim of the event is to give local and international artists a platform to showcase experimental sound through installations and live performances.
The first event in this series will take place on the 23rd and 24th of March 2018, with performances in two historic city centre venues, here in St. Peter’s Cork and in Cork City Gaol.
Cork based artists African Fiction, Static and Robert Curgenven are set to be joined by Derry native Autumns for the opening night here in St. Peter’s. A new sound installation will also be unveiled by Isochronal, a collaboration by artists Kevin Callaghan and Thomas Penc. This dynamic duo recently exhibited work in the National Sculpture Factory for Culture Night 2017.
All proceeds raised will go toward funding the event and the artists involved. In doing so, the organisers hope to bring new sounds to a wider audience.
This ambitious project is currently 100% crowd funded with supporters entitled to access to Cork Sound Fair events and other perks. Cork Sound Fair is an open source venture, demonstrating that projects like this can showcase this content and support the contributing artists, and in turn hopefully help change the conditions for artists who want to pursue their passion and chosen art form.
