Elemental Arts and Culture Festival is returning to the streets of Limerick again this year from the 12th – 14th of September. The festival showcases all forms of arts and you can expect to find everything from street performers, dance and short films to street art, biodiversity workshops and lace-making.
A fun filled, action packed schedule means that this three day arts and culture festival really does have something in store for everyone. Comedy, music, drama, laughter, wonder and amazement, what else could you ask for?
The streets of Limerick will come alive and everyone, young and old, is invited to take part in the festivities, no matter who you are or where you are from!
Why the name Elemental? It’s simple, really! The title, Elemental, originates from the fact that all the elements earth, fire, water, air and metal, are the essential and fundamental point for the festival. All of these elements will be represented throughout the festival at that is what makes the name so suited.
A festival which encompasses the arts in all their guises, including but not limited to: visual art, street theatre, music, crafts, forgotten skills, youth theatre, comedy, print, acrobatics, film and photography.
The title, Elemental, relates to the fact that all the elements of Nature – earth, fire, water, air and metal, are the jump-off point for the festival. We want to place special emphasis on the people of Limerick, given that they are one of the key elements, without which there would be no festival. All the elements will be represented in the type of acts and performers we are inviting.
