Festival Installation 2021: Land, Sea, Sky

Chamber Music on Valentia will be presented between 12 to 15 August this year, in a blended format of on-line and on Valentia events.  

As part of our series of virtual events, we are delighted to announce a call for applications from Kerry-based creators (mixed media/video/sound art/composition/performance) to create a digital work to be launched and hosted on the Chamber Music on Valentia website during the 2021 Festival.  

Land, Sea, Sky

Valentia Island is the perfect place for a unique chamber music festival, nestled in a rich and vibrant landscape. It is a spectacular location as one of Ireland’s most westerly points, steeped in history (ancient and recent) and it is fitting that our 2021 installation will place the island’s unique relationship with land, sea and sky at the forefront.

Therefore we are looking for a creative to produce this year’s installation on the theme of Land, Sea, Sky.

How to apply

Applications are open now. Please complete this short form below by the closing date of 5.00pm on Monday, 28 June 2021.
