Are you willing to adopt an Irish word?

A frail, endangered word that has no speakers left to say it aloud, to slip it into sentences, to breathe life into it.

The Irish language has 4,400 different words to describe someone.

I need you to take responsibility for just one of them – cherish it, play with it, make it your own.

If you’re willing, please consider undergoing my short ritual of cleansing and preparation, after which I’ll select a word specifically for you.

It will be bestowed in a public ceremony.


An bhfuil tú sásta focal Gaeilge a uchtú?

Focal lag, i mbaol, nach bhfuil lucht labhartha  a dhearfadh os ard a thuilleadh aige, nó a shleamhnódh isteach in abairt é, nó a tharraingeoidh anáil tríd, fiú.

Tá 4,400 focal as Gaeilge le cur síos ar duine. Ba mhaith liom go mbeifeá freagrach as ceann amháin acu – cothaigh é, imir leis, glac chugat féin é. Má tá tú toilteanach, le do thoil, glac páirt i mo dheasghnáth gearr ullmhúcháin agus glanadh.

Ina dhiaidh, roghnóidh mé focal ar leith díreach duitse.

Bronnfar ort é i searmanas poiblí.

Open Call: Future Forecast Curator

Project Arts Centre is powered by creative ideas, critical thinking and debate. Artists and audiences are often first to forecast the future – for good and for ill. As we look to our future in an uncertain world, which is leaning towards populism, tokenism, and right wing conservative politics, we want to engage in a conversation about contemporary Ireland and the arts. We want to peel back the skin to see how artists are faring and examine the ways in which our arts community can reflect, mediate, challenge and shape our collective fate. Where does our future lie? As part…
