Events at the N4 Centre
We believe language and literature are essential tools for creating a more empathic society. The Narrative 4 Centre hosts a number of free literary events for the public. Authors Lila Azam Zangaheh, Colum McCann, Ruth Gilligan, Donal Ryan, Terry Tempest Williams, Christine Dwyer Hickey, Paul Lynch, Mary O’ Malley, Kerry Neville have all been guest readers at Narrative 4.
Storytelling Open Mic Nights
Narrative 4 hosts regular storytelling nights in Limerick City, open to the public. Participants can sign-up the night of to tell a short 5 to 7 minute story from their life or simply just come and listen. Past themes include: ‘firsts,’ ‘heroes’ and ‘loss.’
Community Art Projects
In June 2017, Narrative 4 partnered with artist Maurice Quillinan, the Parks And Landscape Department of Limerick City and County Council, and the youth of Limerick to create a community garden at the Narrative 4 centre. The Limerick Post covered the creation of the garden! Now, the centre and its beautiful garden are home to community art events aimed at involving the larger Limerick community.
The walls of the Narrative 4 centre have been home to the works of incredible artists such as Maurice Quillinan, Clare Hartigan, and Brian Fitzgerald Parallel Editions. We regularly show the work of Narrative 4 participants and local educational institutions, such as the Limerick School of Art and Design.
