We are delighted to launch ‘Light Up’, an artist led, community engagement Project, presented by Draíocht, in partnership with Fingal County Council in February 2021.
It sees Draíocht commission artists to create a series of images that will be projected on to our building over the darker months of 2021. It is one of a suite of responses from us to the challenges and opportunities that different levels of lockdown have presented around access to art for all and how we can continue to support and work collaboratively with artists.
While our building is closed to the public at various points during 2021, these commissioned projections will provide points of connection between Draíocht, artists and the community we serve.
They are a conversation starter, a focus for people of all ages to take a moment to look at something that is beautiful, that can bring joy, that is unexpected. They will be colourful, highly impactful and will make our building a living artwork, changing every few weeks.
What will be on our building next? You’ll just have to wait and see!
Share your visit to our Projections with us!
To celebrate the Launch of Light Up, we asked Alan Nolan to create a downloadable activity worksheet and video, for young people to interact with.
