Open from 6pm to 9.30pm
Devised and curated by Eve Li, The Bridge of Tears is an immersive experience, with stories, photographs and recipes shared by those who have made Donegal their home, as well as from those who have left Ireland to find a life somewhere new. In sharing these stories, we hope to learn about each other, create connections and build lasting relationships.
Enter the space between hope and experience, listen to the waves as they rock the small boat where you and your fellow travellers sit, waiting to glimpse the far shore. Look around at the photographs and memories of the immigrants, refugees and asylum seekers who have made Donegal their own new home. Experience the resonances of Ireland’s own stories of emigration away from this island to other far shores.
The installation is situated in the upper foyer of An Grianán Theatre and will continue until the end of the year. Opening hours 9.30 – 3.30 PM Monday to Friday.
Please contact Eve Li for additional information and group visits by schools and community groups by email.
NB: please note that there is some strong language used in the audio recordings.
