Home of the Inisheer Zibaldone

Inisheer (Inis Oírr) is the smallest of the Aran islands in Galway Bay off the west coast of Ireland. The Inisheer Zibaldone notebook captures island life and island people.

A Zibaldone was originally a notebook kept by Italian merchants in the 14th century.
Alongside notes of a professional nature appeared stories, quotes and drawings.

This website complements the physical Inisheer Zibaldone notebook. It will track the creation of the notebook and it’s contributors. It is a hodgepodge of images, video, stories and information of a not so easily pigeon-holed nature.

This collaborative project is led by JesseJames, who were artists in residence at the Aras Eanna Arts Centre on Inisheer in the month of August 2017.
