The Wreck of the Santa Ana Maria comes to life….

Under a week to go until the Festival and to celebrate we’ve commissioned a very talented animator Delia Johnson, to create a piece inspired by one of our 2018 Festival talks, by Dr Connie Kelleher. Connie will speak at the Festival about 'The 1627 wreck of the Spanish treasure galleon Santa Ana Maria and the fall of an empire’.

Connie is a member of the Underwater Archaeology Unit (UAU) in the National Monuments Service (NMS), Department of Culture, Heritage and the Gaeltacht. Delia is an illustrator, writer, presenter, performer and art historian and you can see more of her work here
