With our diamond slippers on
Do our gay ballet on ice
Bluebirds on our shoulders” - The National

For 20 years Other Voices has been bringing the world’s most exciting musicians together to raise their voices to sing in the Church of St James', in West Kerry. Part festival, part broadcast and part musical pilgrimage, their forward thinking approach to music, intimacy and human connection has brought indescribable experiences to both artists and attendees alike.
This exhibition, created in collaboration with The Tenth Man and Hen’s Teeth, marks the 20 year anniversary of Other Voices. 20 Irish painters, designers, photographers and illustrators were invited to each create a piece of art based on some of the most iconic lyrics performed on Other Voices stages.
“To be able to collaborate with our pals at Tenth Man and Hens Teeth with such a talented array of artists and enter into the world of art for the first time has been an absolute joy and a pleasure. Musicians and artists give us a sense of who we are. Our job is to get out of their way, and let them do just that. Enjoy the show / Bain sult as <3 "
