Pageant title; Let’s make History Colourful
Artastic known for colouring our Urban landscapes with its colourful creations, was looking at how sometimes our history looked a bit grey. The Artastic Artists imagined if they could go back through or history books, how they might add a bit of colour and carnival to some of our history. Artastic’s artists set off with the fabric, paint and performers, adding a bit of colour and fun to the Celtic Ireland and the Myths that seem to be embossed into the history of the bronze and Iron Age in Ireland.
