In 2018, 3 artists from the West Cork Area were commissioned to develop three unique projects, on three separate islands in West Cork, they are: Sherkin Island (Mona O’Driscoll), Heir Island (Tess Leak) and Long Island(art manoeuvres). Responding to the question: What is an Island?, the art events were connected by a specially commissioned ferry on the 30th July, which brought together thinkers, educators and government officials on a single summer day, in search of a deeper connection between islanders, artists and the world.
