Making Waves: Galway Showcase
Milwaukee Irish Fest is excited to feature the vibrant music and culture of Galway, Ireland! In 2020, Galway will reign as the European Capital of Culture, which is one of the most recognized EU projects. The initiative began in 1985, with the idea to put specific regions at the heart of cultural life across Europe. Through culture and art, European Capitals of Culture improve the quality of life in the selected regions and strengthen the sense of community.
The concept for Galway2020 is Making Waves. It is about creating new ways of thinking, new ways of working, new conversations and new partnerships aimed at ensuring a more creative Galway. Galway2020 will explore the themes of Migration, Landscape and Language - to celebrate the diversity of cultures in Europe on the backdrop of Galway whilst promoting the city and county and the collective imagination of the Galway region.
