ARTIST IN RESIDENCE
Sylvia Cullen - ‘Smugglers & Summer Snowflakes’
Sylvia Cullen is an Irish writer, based in Wexford, working in fiction, theatre, film, animation and audio. She was commissioned alongside three other Welsh and Irish artists to create new work that spoke to the following themes:
- Personal or collective pilgrimage or journeying
- Sacred Places
- Celtic diaspora, ancestral heritage and a longing for home
- Creative Storytelling that connects North Pembrokeshire and North Wexford
Sylvia responded to the themes by conducting a series of community exchanges in both Wexford and Pembrokeshire to gather inspiration for her work. She studied and researched stories and immersed herself in the places and landscapes that were important to her and the participants of her workshops.
Ultimately, Sylvia has created a stunning set of 4 short stories exploring human connection to place in both Wexford and Pembrokeshire. She has recorded these pieces and they are available to listen to as podcasts on Google Podcasts, Apple Podcasts, Spotify and Souncloud.
Below shows the four stories, both as podcasts and short films of Sylvia as she reads them out loud.
