'Stories from 1916' at the Milwaukee Irish Fest!

Dave and Colin have been busy over in Milwaukee! Here's just a glimpse of the first few days of their trip. From exhibiting some of the 'Stories from 1916' project at a meeting of the local branch of the Ancient Order of Hibernians, to setting up our exhibition in the Cultural Village of the festival and screening of A Terrible Beauty, they've been kept busy so far! They even had to battle with a freak storm during the set-up (See the flooded Tent!), but overall it seems Dave and Colin had  a successful trip and met lots of great people.
