We’re just days away from the fifth edition of Spilt Milk!
This year’s festival weekend also sees an eclectic programme of visual and literary art and special events. Audiences are invited to explore Sligo town through a walking trail and zine. The Seven Wonders of Sligo is a zine which uncovers true stories of Sligo’s paranormal history. Cryptids, moaning murals and kappas all feature in this ground-breaking work of paranormal scholarship.
Specially commissioned for the festival by Faerie Lord, a Sligo based collective of paranormal researchers and zine makers. Its members are Wyrd Caldron, Hexlord and Technopagan. They will be appearing at Pulled Studio to launch the zine on Saturday 18 November.
You will NOT meet the authors because they are being kept anonymous for your protection, but you will be able to pick up a copy of Seven Wonders of Sligo, along with free zines and enjoy a special DJ set by dangerous alien creature and collective mascot ‘Faerie Road’ themselves.
Loose on the Streets, an installation by Karen Browett will be presented on Saturday evening within The Model. The video work acts as a callback to the 2022 festival design created by Karen, which in turn grew from this film. Karen takes us on a riotous ride exploring life after lockdown in a personal and playful video piece saturated in the punk aesthetic.
Artist Ruth Clinton provides an introduction to Suminagashi or “floating ink” workshop, the process of marbling plain paper with water and ink which yields beautiful and surprising patterns, ranging from simple to complex. This will take place on Sunday 19th offering a relaxing and fun activity to unwind to as the festival draws to a close.
The BRRR BRRR BRRR Record and Tape Fair will pop up at Pulled Studio over two days with live DJs, original pressings, and second-hand deals, celebrating independent record shops, labels and producers on the island of Ireland. A must for any crate-diggers!
