HOMESPUN is the culmination of a spoken word and poetry project which seeks to celebrate and give a public platform to the voices and experiences of young people who call Dublin 15 their home, be they from Cork, Warsaw or Tokyo and regardless of whether they live in apartments, houses or hotels.
There are young people, for whom their friends mean Home and for others, Home can only ever be where their family is. Home can be when you have beans on toast, it can be your diary, or where your granny is; it can be in the car, or in your earphones. It can be a great place … or sometimes not so great.

This exhibition is an exploration of sound, words and contemporary arts practice and features an opening night performance by the young people.

Draíocht’s Galleries are open Monday to Saturday, 10am-6pm
Free Admission
