Learning Festival 2015

Learning Festival 2014

The 12th Cork Lifelong Learning Festival will take place from Monday March 23 to Sunday March 29, 2015.

Cork’s Lifelong Learning Festival promotes and celebrates learning of all kinds, across all ages, interests and abilities, from pre-school to post retirement.

The festival’s motto is Investigate, Participate, Celebrate, and the public can do that by watching demonstrations, trying out skills, and seeing others, from the young to the old, show off what they are learning.

Since it started in 2004, it has grown from 65 to about 500 different events. During festival week all events are free and everyone is welcome.

Learning is promoted as fun with events including performances, debates, taster sessions, tours, displays, demonstrations. They take place right across Cork in a variety of venues indoors and out, including on water, and in shopping centres, libraries, museums, resource and community centres, parks, sportsgrounds and on the streets.

They are organised by people all over the city, who get together to run events, many in their local neighbourhoods, opening up their premises to the public to come in and discover the opportunities for learning available.
