Home of the Inisheer Zibaldone

Inisheer (Inis Oirr) 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.

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

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 over the month of August. It is a hodgepodge of images, video, stories and information of a not so easily pigeon-holed nature.
