Welcome to the festival within a festival!
Skibbereen FeelGood Festival is 2 days all about community, participation, connection, engagement, slowing down, having fun and feeling good!
We will unite and engage in a series of cultural activities. FeelGood promotes and celebrates community wellbeing while linking with many ongoing resources in our town.
This year we invite you to explore your voice, connections with others through the voice, and to explore and connect with key environments in our community that provide centres for personal and communal development.
Absolute beginners are welcome to all FeelGood events.
Thank you to 49 North Street, Uillinn and Skibbereen Community and Family Resource Centre for support in developing this festival.
Kindly supported by Cork County Council Arts Office
