Voice Tracking
Megan Hadfield

We are very excited to share Voice Tracking by Megan Hadfield.

Voice Tracking is a text commissioned by Muine Bheag Arts in response to Grass Roots 2023.

Grass Roots took place in August 2023 and included contributions from artists Cóilín O’Connell, Mollie Anna King, Niamh Seana Meehan and Holly Pickering. Voice Tracking was developed following conversations with the artists and encounters with the works as the programme unfolded.

The text narrates the movements of four archetypes; the Keeper, the Walker, the Glazier and the Instructor as they come across the works. Prose poetry, footnotes and symbols mark a route between artwork and setting as a strange series of events transpire.

Voice Tracking is available to order here

Grass Roots
11 August - 10 September

Muine Bheag Arts is pleased to present the third edition of Grass Roots. Grounded in the local, Grass Roots refers to collective organising and modes of kinship. The programme unfolds in public spaces throughout Muine Bheag in County Carlow from 11 August - 10 September.

Grass Roots brings together contributions from Cóilín O’Connell, Mollie Anna King, Niamh Seana Meehan and Holly Pickering. Following a period of time spent in the town, the artists have developed a series of site-responsive interventions and one-off events.

Stemming from encounters with the land, the works reflect on ecosystems and the energies needed to sustain them. Connections are drawn between structures of communication, processes of exchange and holistic coexistence with the natural world.

This programme is kindly supported by the Arts Council of Ireland, Creative Ireland and Carlow County Council.
