Narratives Unfolded
Narratives Unfolded is a series of workshops from Cork Cultural Companions, aimed at enriching the lives of older adults in Cork City through engagement with visual arts and creative writing.

The series of six workshops will provide participants with the opportunity to explore visual art exhibitions in Cork City and creatively respond to them through prose, poetry, or storytelling.

Narratives Unfolded will include three exhibition visits to art galleries in Cork City and three writing sessions in Grand Parade Cork City Library, providing participants with a structured environment to reflect on their experiences and express themselves creatively.

Narratives Unfolded is supported through Cork City Council by the Creative Ireland Programme.
