NEW EVENT: Meet the Author – Darren Shan

April 14, 2010

Don't miss the latest addition to our Youth Arts programme, where you can Meet the Author – Darren Shan.
Taking place on Friday 30 April, in our Main Auditorium, from 10.30am-11.30am (followed by book signing), this event is suitable for anyone aged 11+ (5th & 6th class groups or other fans not in school!). This is a free event but must be booked in advance at Box Office, tel: 01-8852622.

Darren Shan brought vampires to a whole new audience with The Cirque du Freak series, which sold in the millions and was made into a movie last year. He then wrote about werewolves and demons in the ten part Demonata, which began with Lord Loss. He is now an international phenomenon with sales of approximately 15 million copies. His new book, ‘The Thin Executioner’ is a stand alone fantasy novel. As you would expect from Darren Shan, master of horror, this is no ordinary fantasy. It is the unusual tale of a boy who wants to be an executioner when he grows up.  Come along and hear Darren talk about his books and his inspiration.  You can ask him a question too - if you dare....

Book now through Draíocht’s Box Office on 01-8852622

Garvan will develop his own personal practice along side engaging in a specific community engagement project in the areas Youth Arts, an 'intergenerational' project involving young people and the elderly in Dublin 15. The residency will result in a solo exhibition of Gallagher’s personal work and a concluding exhibition for the Youth Arts Project to be held during the period of Spréacha, Fingal’s Annual International Arts Festival for Children, in 2011.

Gallagher’s practice is primarily through lens-based mediums, photography and film, frequently centralizing a single figure within a specific environment. His work often references the social body and investigates how society shapes people as human beings, as well as engaging with the fundamental issue of how trust comes to be mutually constituted between artist and subject.

Stay in touch with Garvan on his website and blog and see some of his past work:
