Cork DFAS 10th Anniversary Year

Cork DFAS  is a group that focuses on learning about and enjoying our wonderful artistic and cultural heritage. 

Regular talks cover a range of arts-related subjects, including material culture, design, craft, history, archeology, architecture and conservation. Topics include the lives and influences of artists, makers, craftspeople, curators and patrons. Talks are presented by recognised experts and delivered in an engaging and informative manner.

  • There are now seven talks (plus one free public talk) each year:
  • three in autumn/winter (October – December)
  • four in spring/summer (February – May).
  • Talks are held in the morning at 11:30 on the second Saturday of the relevant month
  • With the exception of Public and Commemorative Talks all talks are given at Nano Nagle Plae, Douglas Street, T12 X70A, Cork: see, Menu: Partner Nano Nagle Place.   Each talk at Nano Nagle Place begins at 11:30 a.m.
  • The free public talk is held in September at the Cork City Central Library, Grand Parade, Cork.
