Bealtaine Gathering 2023

The Gathering is a day of networking, showcasing good practice, discussion and feedback on the festival as we look ahead to 2024. It provides us with an opportunity to hear about the challenges and needs of the organisers, showcases interesting and inspirational events from the previous festival, and provides practical supports for local organisers.

This year's event will take place in the beautiful surrounds of the National Gallery of Ireland and will bring together the Bealtaine community of organisers, artists, partners and supporters to look at different issues of community, diversity and new directions in our work.

We are delighted to announce that our keynote speaker is Conny Groot, Cultural Generation Foundation and Schaduwhelden, Netherlands, please read her biography below.

We’re also looking forward to hearing about issues facing organisers around the country and how we can better support you to plan fantastic events for Bealtaine 2024.
