Found Links is a new collaborative project between Print Van Go travelling print studio and TFI Local Link Tipperary bus service, bringing together traditions in music, print, storytelling and the joys of exploring Tipperary landscapes.
Local artists Aoife Barrett, Cáit Ní Riain and Tim Davis are delighted to partner with Local Link Tipperary staff, passengers and local hillwalking groups on this Creative Ireland Tipperary project. Join us over the summer months as we will be sharing a number of walks and trails that can be accessed from Local Link bus routes. The plan is to connect local music, poetry and folklore to these walks and publish a series of broadside ballads and maps for each location. As well as the broadsides the project will include a series of postcards, pop-up performances, live printing events, guided walks and more. Found Links is all about rediscovering our local landscape and capturing the long standing connection between music, place and identity throughout Tipperary.
As part of the project we are looking to connect with local people to help identify walks and trails within the location of Local Link bus routes while curating a collection of music, poetry and folklore linked to these locations. If you or anyone you know might be interested in helping us research suitable walks and share your local knowledge of music and folklore in these areas we’d love to hear from you. This project has received funding as part of the Creative Ireland programme with support from Tipperary County Council. #creativeireland Tipperary Arts Office TFI Local Link Tipperary Tipperary Museum of Hidden History Tipp Coco Tipperary County Council Library Service CreativeIrl
