Solas Nua Program News Post Image

Start to plan your 2023 activities - a smorgasbord of events with Solas Nua!

A spotlight on women will kick off the year with Imbolc, a new work written and performed by Irish folk singer-songwriter Maija Sofia on St. Brigid’s Day. We are also delighted to partner again with Dublin based theatre company Fishamble, to present Margaret McAuliffe’s award winning The Humours of Bandon, and we will focus on Northern Ireland as we continue into year two of the Norman Houston Project, dedicated to the memory of the former Director of the Northern Ireland Bureau in the US.

We continue to build on some of our old favorites, including our 17th annual Capital Irish Film Festival, led this year by our new Festival Director Maedhbh Mc Cullagh, Irish Book Day - which will be at the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Library in downtown D.C., and our beloved Play Reading Series as well as the ever popular CIFF@Home with NYU DC Dialogues. 

As always, Solas Nua is committed to bringing the best of contemporary Irish arts to D.C. and are deeply thankful to our valued supporters, your help goes directly into making projects happen. Our tagline is ‘New Irish Arts’ and we are proud to share all that is inspiring about globally diverse Ireland. 

We look forward to seeing you at one of our partner venues in 2023!

Best Wishes
Miranda Driscoll
Executive Director, Solas Nua
