Join our Team in the Amalfi Coast & isle of Capri

 Walking Challenge  2015

September 12th – September 19thh  2015

This year our annual fundraising walk will take you to the Amalfi Coast and the Island of Capri.The whole Amalfi coast is a hikers paradise. The entire peninsula of Sorrent is criss-crossed with ancient walking paths leading over the rocky landscape from one hamlet to the next. You will walk on paths already in use for many centuries, often carefully built with stone steps and well maintained. You will experience breathtaking views down to the always present sea as far as Capri, interestingly shaped rocks, mountains and traces of hundreds of years of cultivation.

The island of Capri is one of the most picturesque and visited locations in Campania. Its unique beauties were celebrated in ancient times and later published for the world in Homer’s works. Odysseus (known in Latin as Ulysses) sailing past the island, narrowly escaped the fate of those who hear the voices of the Sirens. Capri is a walker’s paradise, full of incredible views and scenery.

 

Denis Roche, Research Fellow @ The National College of Art and Design (NCAD) and Professor Shaun McCann have been invited to speak at a meeting 'Art, Design and New Technology for Health' at the prestigious Victoria and Albert Museum (V&A).

They will address the subject of 'Designing digital environments for health-reconciling isolation, and connectivity' at the conference on June 19th. They will base their talks on the Open Window project and the recent exhibition:' Blood: not for the faint hearted'. in the Science gallery in TCD which attracted over 100,000 visitors.
