We invite teachers from Primary and Secondary Schools in Dublin 15 to apply to be part of HOMESPUN, a spoken word, poetry and performance project, with award winning poet Colm Keegan and Visual Artist Micheal McLoughlin.

Over Autumn/Winter 2017 and Spring 2018, Colm Keegan will engage pupils in writing poetry about their place and their home, complementing Draíocht’s theatre project, ‘Home Theatre Ireland’. This is a project about encouraging, supporting and acknowledging the voice of our younger citizens. The project will culminate in a live performance and exhibition in Draíocht’s First Floor Gallery space in Spring 2018.

If you are interested in your school taking part in this project please contact sarah@draiocht.ie or on 01 8098029 for an application form by Friday 29nd September 2017.

Yvonne McGuinness - Amharc Fhine Gall 11th Edition

Yvonne McGuinness - Amharc Fhine Gall 11th Edition

Draíocht in collaboration with Fingal County Council Arts Office

Wed 22 Nov - Sat 3 Feb 2018 Ground Floor Gallery

Draíocht, in collaboration with Fingal County Council Arts Office, is delighted to announce a new commission from visual artist Yvonne McGuinness for the 11th edition of Amharc Fhine Gall. McGuinness’ practice encompasses performance, video, photography, sewing, writing, sculpture and context-specific installations. She has an interest in embodied experience of place and in re-imagining the everyday by devising projects that create dynamic moments of connection to place and community. Her work is immersive, collaborative and is often a catalyst to generate other narratives for its participants.

For this commission, McGuinness will work with a culturally diverse group of local young people from D15's Foroige, exploring themes of identity, place and their connection to it. This collaboration during the autumn months will result in a site-specific performance and film installation to be shown in Draíocht’s Ground Floor Gallery - itself a two-way mirror between ‘the art world’ and ‘the real world’

Amharc Fhine Gall (Fingal Gaze) is an annual exhibition funded by Fingal County Council’s Arts Office, in collaboration with Draíocht. The exhibition was initiated in 2004 to provide a platform for visual artists from or living in Fingal. Yvonne McGuinness grew up in Portmarnock, Co Fingal.

Draiocht's Galleries are open Monday to Saturday 10am-6pm. Admission is Free.

Curated by Sharon Murphy, Draíocht Curator-in-Residence 2017.
