Mark your calendars for July 14 and 15, 2023, as IMMA welcomes guests to celebrate another remarkable year of artistic accomplishments within its vibrant community.
IMMA is gearing up for its highly anticipated summer event, Continuous Patterns. This year, the party promises two evenings of music, art, and an extraordinary atmosphere on the picturesque grounds of IMMA.
Continuous Patterns, after experiencing a sold-out edition in 2022, is back with a bang. The 2023 edition boasts a mouthwatering array of culinary delights. Satisfy your taste buds with delectable offerings from Caminero Bakery, Ginger BBQ, and Tribal Burger. Refreshments are to be provided by Whiplash Beer, Tanqueray Gin, and Craft Cocktails, adding the perfect flourish to your summer soirée.
Tickets for Continuous Patterns are available for thirty-five euros and can be purchased on IMMA’s website.
The organizers have pulled out all the stops to curate an impressive lineup of entertainment, tantalizing cuisine, and refreshing drinks. While the bespoke music roster featuring artists like Jape, Talos, Bricknasty, Qbaana, Dreamcycles, Caoi de Barra, Ailbhe Reddy, Efa O Neill, and more have already been announced, IMMA recently unveiled an exciting collection of talks, live art performances, guided tours, and delectable food and beverage partners.
To kick off the intellectual exploration, the program will commence with a series of thought-provoking talks centred around the theme of “Movement.” Curated by the brilliant mind of Siobhan Kane, known for her work with Young Hearts Run Free, The Irish Times, and Winter Papers, these discussions will delve into the concept of change and its connection to consciousness. Drawing inspiration from Aldous Huxley’s famous quote, “Consciousness is only possible through change; change is only possible through movement,” a diverse group of speakers will reflect on the role of movements in art, politics, and physicality, encouraging attendees to ponder their own contributions and the potential for effecting change.
