Drop Everything is a contemporary cultural biennial that takes place on Inis Oírr. Situated on the edge of the Atlantic, Inis Oírr is the smallest of the Aran Islands and has a rich natural and cultural heritage.

The event features national and international participants from a cross section of the creative industries, and the weekend is designed to encourage and instigate creative exchange between artists and audience alike.

Drop Everything is about getting excited by new ideas and taking the time to consider them. It’s for people who do and people who want to.

Drop Everything is created by everyone who contributes, whether that's with their art, their skill, their time or by funding the event.

Is éard é ‘Drop Everything’ ná féile dhébhliantúil atá cultúrtha, comhaimseartha agus a bhíonn ar siúl in Inis Oírr. Is é Inis Oírr an t-oileán is lú d'Oileáin Árann, é suite ar bhruach an Atlantaigh agus oidhreacht nádúrtha agus cultúrtha shaibhir aige.

Bíonn rannpháirtithe náisiúnta agus idirnáisiúnta as meascán tionscal cruthaitheach i láthair aige agus bíonn an deireadh seachtaine leagtha amach le malartú cruthaitheach idir ealaíontóirí agus lucht féachana araon a spreagadh agus a chothú.

Le ‘Drop Everything’ bítear tógtha go mór le smaointe nua agus tógtar an t-am chun iad a mheas. Is don dream é a bhíonn ag cruthú agus don dream a dteastaíonn uathu a bheith ag cruthú.

An dream ar fad a thacaíonn le ‘Drop Everything’, bhuel sin iad an dream a chruthaíonn é, bíodh gur lena n-ealaín, a gcuid scileanna, a gcuid ama nó tríd an imeacht a mhaoiniú é.

The best part of it all is that you come away with a renewed hope that some creatives aren’t shielding their ideas book from potential thieves, but rather cattle-prodding them into existence with new friends.
