In 2050, art and culture as we know it has been destroyed by rolling pandemics, political unrest and climate change. A custodian of art from this dystopian future has placed 20 surviving artworks around County Louth for safe keeping. To ensure the future survival of art and culture, you must solve the clues, find the artworks and discover what happens between now and 2050 as you unlock the story behind the Louth Culture Quest.
Download the Louth Culture Quest app and embark on a futuristic treasure hunt exploring County Louth. From the Cooley Peninsula, to the coastal town of Baltray, tread the towns of Dundalk and Drogheda on foot. Armed with your mobile device and guided by the custodian from the future named Lugh, performed by Fr Ted's Joe Rooney, you will take a journey through time, exploring the heritage sites of County Louth, engaging with newly commissioned pieces of art and changing the course of history.
The County has been split into 4 zones, North Louth, Dundalk, South Louth and Drogheda. 20 new artworks by 4 visual artists have been created specifically for the quest, with five artworks in each zone. On completion of the quest audiences can contact An Táin Arts Centre to claim their LCQ Limited Edition reward pin.
