Since March 2020, Irish Arts Center virtual programming has reached more than 400,000 people in 49 states and 123 countries. As we return to live events, we will sustain our digital platforms including online classes, our Irish Word of the Week and Poem of the Week series, the Weekend Playlist, and much more. 

We will also expand our reach through a new partnership with the New York-based Emmy-winning arts and culture hub ALL ARTS, including a suite of programs presented as part of ALL ARTS Radio Hour, available on 88.3 WLIW-FM, Long Island’s only NPR station, or wherever you listen to podcasts. 

This collaboration will begin with the radio and podcast premiere of our 13th annual PoetryFest and the 12th season of Muldoon’s Picnic, an evening of music, storytelling and poetry hosted by Pulitzer Prize-winning Irish poet Paul Muldoon. It follows our fall 2021 partnership with ALL ARTS on Afterwards, a digital commission written and directed by Enda Walsh, for their groundbreaking series The First Twenty, now streaming nationwide on the ALL ARTS website and app

Created by The WNET Group, the community-supported home of New York’s PBS stations, ALL ARTS is breaking new ground as the premier destination for inspiration, creativity and art of all forms. Learn more at
