By inspiring the public through high quality performances and productions in unexpected places, within a festival atmosphere, CMF aims to promote excellence across the arts in Cork and build awareness and a sense of pride in Cork's cultural achievements and resources.
Cork Midsummer Festival is one of Ireland’s leading art festivals of contemporary performance. It is an annual festival (11 days in 2012) presenting a season of local, national and international events across a range of cultural forms including theatre, off-site performance, contemporary and popular music, participatory projects, mass free events, dance, debate, ideas, visual and conceptual art. The festival presents, commissions and produces Irish and European premieres of ground-breaking international theatre artists, new productions from Cork and Irish companies as well as high profile international co-productions, often involving international theatre-makers collaborating with home-grown talent.
We work very closely with the Head of the national network at present. But with our experience working with International counterparts, the EU and International artists we hope to get very involved and connect with both the Irish Network and the ALF Network.
CMF are always looking at different International organisations to partner with and we would like to broaden this network by joining the ALF.
