Cúirt International Festival of Literature In Galway
One of Europe’s oldest book festivals, the focus is on both Irish and international writing. Past highlights included a revealing chat with Marian Keyes, Emma Dabiri discussing What White People Can Do Next with Blindboy Boatclub, and Mind Your Language: Having a Word with Ourselves, a look at the links between Ireland’s two languages.
Cúirt International Festival of Literature brings readers and writers together to tell stories, share new perspectives and celebrate writing in all forms. It fosters a community of readers interested in the world, creating a space for conversation, debate and reflection.
Cúirt are proud to create a festival that showcases brilliant and diverse writing, championing new voices and celebrating Irish and international writing talent. At the core of Cúirt’s programme lives an enduring curiosity, a desire to ask questions and to understand how we make meaning in a changing world. Cúirt contributes in essential ways to Ireland’s literature ecology, providing an international platform for new writing, developmental opportunities for writers and the wider sector, and fostering and nurturing Ireland’s nation of readers.
