Ulysses Journey 2022

2 February 2022 marked the 100th anniversary of the publication of Ulysses by James Joyce.  In light of the importance to Dublin and Ireland of this milestone in world literature, as well as its significance to Paris where it was first published, the Contemporary Music Centre, Ireland (CMC) and Centre Culturel Irlandais (CCI) are presenting an international celebration across Ireland and Europe from February to June 2022.  Ulysses Journey 2022 started in Dublin and Paris on 2 February 2022, and journeyed to Belfast and back to Dublin in early February 2022 and throughout April 2022.  It is now travelling to Budapest and Szombathely for 15, 16 and 17 June 2022 and will end in Paris on 18 June 2022.
