Void’s ongoing collaboration with artist Clare Mc Laughlin continues with SÚIL Lines of Longitude taking place on Rathlin Island, Northern Ireland on September 10th 2021. Exploring the shoreline on Rathlin Island and considering lines of longitude which give us our precise location when coupled with the lines of latitude, this art project invites visually impaired people to join us on a sculptural and sensory walk on the Island. It is the 5th in the SÚIL series; previous walks have taken place on Cape Clear, Sherkin Island and Antigua in the Carribean.

To register your place please contact Clare on claremclaughlinemail@gmail.com. Participants are advised to register before 15 August as places are limited. Logistical details are available below.
