The Museum of Literature Ireland welcomes three artists from different disciplines as part of their free monthly event.
On Friday 5 May from 18.00-21.00, The Museum of Literature Ireland is hosting a free event featuring performances, live readings and artists in conversation. First Fridays enlists Soft Boy Records producer Wastefellow for a DJ set, South African born poet, storyteller and playwright Nandi Jola for a live reading and multi-disciplinary artist Michelle Malone to give a talk on her practice. What’s more is, it’s free.
The monthly event takes place on the first Friday of each month in MoLI, with the museum opening late to showcase a specially programmed night that can feature anything from dance performances to live conversations or readings. On top of that, the Commons Cafe is also open late, with coffee, prosecco and vegan options on hand for those attending the event.

In April’s edition of the event, Varo provided a performance, while Audrey Magee, the author of The Colony read from her work. Attendees also had the opportunity to visit ‘all these words’, the immersive audio-visual experience of Samuel Beckett’s novel ‘The Unnamable’ voiced by theatre artist Olwen Fouéré,
