Dreaming Ireland

dreaming-place-cover

Dreaming Place is a new ebook by Anna Keleher with illustrations by Anna Keleher and Claire Cote. The two artists made two journeys wild-camping in the Marble Arch Caves Geopark which straddles the Ireland/Northern Ireland border. They talked with lots of local people about the relationship between the land and their dreams. They recorded local musicians, storytellers, potholers, artists. They wanted to find out about both old and new approaches to off-grid living.

They made a series of radio programmes, a mobile listening and recording studio and now this book.

The book includes 25 line drawings by the artists and is a lively, humorous and vivid read.

It is available from Amazon for £2.75 or free on Kindle Unlimited. I highly recommend it for Christmas presents, accompanying a journey to Ireland, or cosy armchair travelling.

Radio Dreaming

Currently writing an essay about Claire Cote and Anna Keleher’s extraordinary Radio Dreaming project where they travelled around Ireland talking with people about the Marble Arch Caves, off-grid living, local traditions, histories, music, and then created a series of radio programmes that you can listen to online:
