Stranger Than Truth

Stranger Than Truth

Dublin 15 Heritage Primary Project

Fri 2 May - Sat 6 Sep 2014 First Floor Gallery

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.

This season Draíocht will collaborate once again with the Irish Film Institutes Education Programme by screening the French Comedy Film 'Populaíre' for Transition Year & Senior Cycle Students. 

It’s 1950’s France and country girl Rose moves to Paris to take on a secretarial job. It doesn’t take long for her boss, (Romain Duris), to see the potential of Rose’s amazing typing skills. Next stop the national speed typing championships. The glamorous 1950’s costumes and period details make this a charming film that is played with great humour.
