What an experience, we are just back from our first sojourn to China.
Our visual and literary exhibition ‘A lonely impulse of delight’ opened at the Irish Embassy Beijing, supported by Culture Ireland and the Western Development Board and formed part of China’s Education Expo where Ireland was awarded 2016 Country of Honour at the China Annual Conference on International Education.
Thank you to all the people who came out to support us but special thank you to his Excellency Ambassador Paul Kavanagh, all the staff in the Embassy of Ireland, China for their invaluable help and very warm welcome. Also a big thank you to Minister Richard Bruton TD for opening the exhibition, Poet Peter Fallon for his reading, Artist Stephen Lawlor for his words, Lisa Chang Lee for her guidance, and very importantly all the artists, writers, craftsmen and poets who made this incredible exhibition.
Lastly, thank you W.B. Yeats for your constant inspiration…
