About our Artist-in-Residence:
About our Storyteller-in-Residence:
Baya Salmon-Hawk works as a performance artist and storyteller all over Wexford bringing venues to life with her voice. From The Hook Lighthouse to the walls of Wexford Town, adults and children are entertained and sometimes startled by her tales.
She comes from a long line of Occitan Contairitz (storytellers). When she was a little girl, her mother, grandmother and great-grandmother told her the stories of their Italian and Provençal ancestors, of the ancient Greeks, the proud Romans and her favourite, the passionate Celts. She has continued to carry on with the family tradition.
She travels to national parks, famous houses, bars and restaurants to tell the stories of the Normans and Celtic ancestors, their struggles and their victories.
Victoria Musson is a Derbyshire folk artist, a student of the old path and traditional ways, a rural folklorist, and teacher of straw craft and natural fibre art. The fertility of the land in folklore and practice is a theme that is richly entwined within her work. Victoria connects with the Genius Loci of the land, using the sandy soils and the rich iron clays, the trees from Oak to Silver Birch, the flowers and herbs of the hedgerows, and found feathers and bones, fusing together an alchemical mix of ancestor worship with ancient Pagan beliefs. Her art touches a nerve of something ancient, indigenous, tribal and sacred.
Since leaving Derby University Victoria has been involved in many arts and performance projects, and has shared her skills in workshops and lectures, inspiring others with her love of the sacred landscape.
We are proud to announce the second group of confirmed world-class speakers and masterclass/workshop presenters.
