This week I am sitting with West Cork based artist Kari Cahill. Kari has a hand in quite a few landmark projects in different parts of the country, as well as running a studio in Schull. In this episode, we talk about the importance of the arts in Ireland today, Kari's visits to India, sustainability, creativity, and reconnecting ourselves to the landscapes of Ireland. We recorded the episode in an upstairs patio room overlooking Cork city. It was very warm and we opened the window, which resulted in the odd bird sound, and city rumblings, and I really enjoyed getting Kari's insights into so many aspects of her work. I hope you enjoy the show.
