Local Place Makers, Elders, Students, Architects, Academics and Artists will be invited to share perceptions in a creative exchange of knowledge though a dance date with a difference.

This event will be Facilitated By Bernadette Divilly with Sharon Murphy (GOWC) Dr. Nessa Cronin NUIG Academic Partner will be present.
