Leaves 2021 : Festival of Writing & Music


Laois Arts Office and Dunamaise Arts Centre are delighted to present Leaves 2021, the 14th annual festival of writing and music in Laois, taking place from 2nd to 7th November.

Clíodhna Ní Anluain is the Guest Curator this year and the festival takes place at Dunamaise Arts Centre in the heart of Portlaoise town, celebrating a diverse and rich synthesis of contributors within a multi-media programme featuring live and virtual events with everything from conversations to music, fiction, non-fiction, poetry, film, theatre, essays, workshops and more.

Leaves 2021 celebrates what happens at the edges, remotely, away from the so-called given centre of things and the many writers attending remind us to notice the richness and complexity of ordinary detail, of the consequences of the disruption to routine and to what can perhaps unintentionally be overlooked.
