A Grand Experience

1 x 52"


A Grand Experience charts a journey by three artists a writer, a photographer and a musician along the Grand Canal on board an original 68 metre Grand Canal barge.

As they travel through Ireland's midlands, they rediscover a lost Ireland, a deep sense of history and heritage and a community that, in spite of the worst ravages of the recession, is thriving and embracing its own uniqueness and talent. Their challenge- to create an artistic response to the people and places they encounter on their journey.

This is a visually stunning travelogue which brings viewers on a timeless journey through an unspoilt and enduring part of Ireland.
