The festival promotes and celebrates learning of all kinds, across all ages, interests and abilities. The festival’s motto is 'Investigate, Participate, Celebrate', and the public can do that by taking part in workshops or classes, watching demonstrations, trying out new skills, and seeing others; from the young to the old, show off what they are learning.

All events are free & accessible to everyone. 

Learning is promoted as fun with events including performances, debates, taster sessions, tours, displays and demonstrations. These free events take place right across Cork in a variety of venues indoors and out; including libraries, museums, community centres, parks, sports grounds, private businesses and in Cork's green spaces.
