Hedge School is for anyone who feels the need to create, anyone who creates for that simple inherent joy, regardless of reward. We invite you all to Doolin, to a magical setting for unique collaborations and intimate encounters between artist and audience, master & student. Hedge School is a not-for-profit, artist-run festival that puts the artist front and centre. 2023’s programme will focus on the crossover between writing, music & film.
Our ongoing goal is to bring arts out of the cities and out of boardrooms and growing a community of creatives on the west coast. Doolin’s location on the edge of the world is reflected in our ethos, we’re committed to art on the edge, embracing diversity and inclusivity, inviting everyone, from all walks of life to come and experience, interact and play in our wild world.
Our goals as a festival are to:
-create the conditions in which innovation, experimentation and risk can thrive
-work collaboratively based on shared values
-foster a community to support artists on the West Coast
-show respect to artists & art workers, their labour and ideas
-provide a platform for under-represented artists.
Hedge School will incorporate concerts, readings, art installations & exhibitions, performance, panel discussions, interviews, workshops & seminars, film premieres, comedy & debate. Hedge School will not finish on the Sunday of the festival.
We aim to run events from our base in Hotel Doolin throughout the year. Hedge School Productions will publish original collaborative material in record, book and film format to build audiences for under-represented artists.
