Culture is the basis of modern society, over time culture changes and evolves, it even blends with other cultures from other countries and grows to create something new. Population movements impacted cultures all over the world and contributed to their modernization and their adaptation to the current world.
In a time where digital and modern lifestyle has taken over, people have less time to experience true culture, they don’t take time to visit museums or expositions, they just prefer staying at home watching television or scrolling Facebook. Because of their work they are tired and all they want is relax at in home. Other would say that museums and culture access is too expensive, and sometimes it is.
If the above paragraph sounds familiar, Culture Night is perfect for you and your mates! During the night you will be able to visit museums and Exabition's later than the other days thanks to this nocturnal event. Culture Night takes place in all of Ireland and it’s completely free.
