glór presents the programme for the 3rd Lasta National Arts Festival, a festival of events programmed for young people by young people, which will take place between Tuesday 4th – Saturday 8th June.

The full Lasta Festival Programme for glór is available HERE

glór is one of seven venues nationwide who have teamed up to present this exciting event in cities and towns across the country, from Letterkenny to Tralee, from Ennis to Portlaoise.

The Lasta programme for glór has been curated by two young Clare-based curators – Ciara Miesle and Rowan Watson Bradshaw, selected through an open call in 2023.  Since then, these Young Curators have had the opportunity to meet up with curators from other venues nationwide. They received mentoring from industry professionals in marketing, touring and venue management and learned about negotiating deals, how to approach artists and companies, and how to manage budgets.

Ciara and Rowan have pulled together an ambitious programme taking inspiration from casual nerd culture.

The Lasta Festival, based on a project originally conceived and delivered by Backstage Theatre in Longford and now in its third year, has blossomed to include venues and individual curators nationwide, and an expanding programme of exciting, multidisciplinary work.  In an innovative and exciting approach to programming, 19 young curators have been engaged by seven regional venues (including glór) to programme a festival of work for young people nationwide. Under the guidance of theatre artist Maisie Lee, these young people will work collaboratively to deliver an ambitious line up of work.  Featuring multiple disciplines and reflecting the diversity of modern Ireland, this festival offers a unique opportunity to develop our future arts programmers and producers. The line-up for this year’s festival will feature theatre, music, comedy, gaming, visual arts, dance, film, photography and experiential moments promising a fresh, fun, and exciting festival.

The seven regional venues involved in the initiative are Backstage Theatre (Longford) Dunamaise Arts Centre (Portlaoise) glór (Ennis) An Grianán (Letterkenny) The Lime Tree Theatre (Limerick) Siamsa Tíre (Tralee) and Town Hall Theatre (Galway)
