Temporarily closed due to the pandemic

Hello and thank you for your interest in retreating to Anam Cara. From where I sit in my cocoon, it seems that the best we can do at the moment is wait each day to see what the latest developments and instructions are. Because of that, I think we will have to postpone booking retreats until we can find a time that will work safely for everybody. Right now, it sounds like none of us should be going too far from home as well as we should still be spending as little time as possible in close proximity to others. Please let me know how best to reach you, and I'll be in touch as soon as it will be safe to open the retreat for residencies and workshops. In the meantime, I send my best wishes for your safety and good health, Sue

Through Our Eyes

Through Our Eyes

Heritage Theatr Cymru's play, Through Our Eyes, by Arlene Pryce, is coming to Anam Cara to share their latest theatrical work and to raise money for Pieta House, Cork. This all-female cast presents a series of stories about women, for this play, in Wales; some of them famous and others long forgotten. The play provides snapshots of their lives in Victorian society and explores the challenges for women in that era and explores a range of Victorian scenes, including: the female expertise in rural crafts, women’s roles of caring for others and female struggle for identity.
