Stranger Than Truth
Dublin 15 Heritage Primary Project
EXHIBITION DATES: 02 MAY–06 SEPT 2014 FIRST FLOOR GALLERY
During this 6 week project 3 local primary schools delved into local histories and explored real and imagined stories from our past with artists Gen Harden and Andrew Carson. The project encouraged an interest in our shared history, local heritage and looked into how history and stories are passed down through generations - sometimes the whole truth does not reach the present. With a focus on contemporary art practices, pupils worked with a variety of mediums including print, paint, collage and film.
The project ends with an exhibition in our First Floor Gallery, a celebration day and opening ceremony for pupils, families, artists and teachers on Friday 02 May at 6.30pm.

Draiocht and The Connect Club 2014
This July Draíocht is delighted to be back, once again, working with the Daughters of Charity’s Summer Camp ‘The Connect Club’ in Laurel Lodge. The summer camp is filled with social and recreational activities catering for young people with varying degrees of intellectual disability, with the aim of providing an outlet that is fun and focused on the individual’s likes and interests.
Over the last number of years Draíocht has partnered with the Connect Club over the summer, by facilitating drama, dance, music and visual art workshops, creating magical goblets and a arty food feast from recycled plastic, plants and clay, among other things. This year, participants will work on their individual creativity and style again with long time Draíocht facilitators Jenny Cleary and Andrew Carson to create fabulous Clay Creatures. We will work with Clay, tools, PVA Glue, paint and paper to create individual pieces of art. Each participant will end the week having gotten a little bit messy, learn a bit about Clay, a bit about painting, have a fab creature to bring home… but most of all to hopefully have had some fun!
