MEMBERS of the public are invited to attend a workshop titled ‘Be the Change’, which is one of the major events planned for the upcoming Brigid of Faughart Festival 2012.

The festival celebrates the life of Brigid of Faughart and the Celtic festival of Imbolc in myth, landscape, folklore, spiritual customs, music and dance.

It is set to run from January 28 until February 1. The Be the Change workshop is taking place at The Magnet Pastoral Centre, Dundalk on Saturday, January 28 from 11am to 4pm.

According to the organisers, the workshop takes a “fresh look” at environmental sustainability, social justice and human/spiritual fulfillment.

“This workshop is not a discourse or debate about the problems we face; it aims to inspire and empower,” said Dolores Whelan.

Registration takes place at 10.30am. Tea/coffee will be provided. Participants are encouraged to make a donation of e10 or e5 if on a low income.
