A series of artist diaries in support of the National Campaign for the Arts will be running this week on RTE Radio 1’s Drivetime programme. (RTE decided for the sake of balance to have an opposing voice do a diary on the same day).
Having heard them you can join the debate by emailing email@example.com or text 51551.

Tuesday 27 – Colum McCann and Liam Collins
Wednesday 28 – Hugo Hamillton and Dr Finbarr Bradley (piece is at 1:14)
