THIS year’s Bandon Engage Arts Festival (Thursday September 25th to Sunday September 28th) once again celebrates contemporary art in all forms and in providing a platform for a connection between art and the wider community. This belief informs the programme, which is, accordingly, varied and will give participants the potential to experience a very broad range of art forms.
