Moments of Wisdom is the pilot programme for a new Firkin Crane initiative. In this instance the Chair of the Board, Yvonne Coughlan engages an established artist or dance industry professional in a structured conversation, programmed for 30 minutes of the regular monthly forums. The idea is to provide new or emerging artists with the opportunity to connect with someone, who has already traversed the difficulties of becoming established as an expert in their field.  Maria Nilsson Waller & Stace Gill-April, Dr. Breandán de Gallaí-May, Catherine Young-July, Anne Maher-August, Chantal McCormick-November

Open forum programmed every second month, which means open agenda section for discussion of anything you wish to bring to the forum.

Town Hall meeting on a quarterly schedule-bringing in a more National agenda, or for interrogation of major organisational strategic proposals.

Dancer Lee Barrett was keeping spirits up while stuck at sea, and made this video at the suggestion of Chair of the Board of Directors of Firkin Crane following the message of his plight being brought to the boards attention by Director Patricia Crosbie. Yvonne followed up with Lee on his case and helped to promote his situation on behalf of Firkin Crane

Many thanks to the department of foreign affairs for working to get our boy home where he belongs! All at Firkin Crane are delighted to have been in a position to offer support to the dancer.

Many thanks to all Opinionline on 96fm and Evening Echo for support. See RSVP links page for more detail on this coverage.
