An Exhibition of Works by Children from Dublin 15

Mon 20 Jul - Fri 28 Aug 2020 Ground Floor Gallery

An Initiative of Draíocht's Children/Youth Arts Programme during Covid19.

We are delighted to reopen Draíocht’s Ground Floor Gallery with an exhibition of 326 works made during lockdown by 164 children from 122 families living on the doorstep of Draíocht in Dublin 15. An initiative of Draíocht’s Children and Youth Arts Programme, #ShowUsYourArt invited its young artists aged 2-13 to make paintings, drawings, sculptures, installations and photographic images as a way to stay close and positively engage during the pandemic.

Over a period of twelve weeks between 30 March and 19 June, portfolios of artworks by the children emerged which investigated and represented their ideas around a range of themes from the experience of different seasonal festivals to the built environment and from the natural world to best friends, family ties and even superheroes. Each week Draíocht posted a selection of submissions online and, following the easing of restrictions, the artworks made their way to the Gallery for selection and installation. The Gallery has been designed to show the works on small shelves, on large round wooden wall based panels, in grid formations, on screens and a specially made soundscape of the children’s experience has been commissioned.

We are indebted to the children and families for their extraordinary commitment and enthusiasm.

Draíocht’s Galleries are open Monday-Friday
10am-6pm from 20 July 2020.
Visitor capacity has been reduced to allow for social distancing.
