Kim Doherty and Heather Brett are the artistic backbone of Droimín - Kim is an art therapist and artist, Heather is a writer, editor and visual artist. Together they have over 40 years of experience in promoting literature, providing facilitation for artistic and community projects, and enhancing awareness of creativity. Kim and Heather and the Droimín Creatives Cavan committee are working in partnership with the local authority and local business to promote the culturally curious tourist to County Cavan for memorable, bespoke literary and arts-based experiences.
Words On Windows is the first offering from Droimín- but this summer Kim and Heather have a bigger ambition to promote Cavan as a celebrated creative destination for both locals and visitors.
