    18.05.2022

    Children and their carers are invited to explore and spend time together in this beautiful sensory play space for children of 3 years and up designed to
    explore a variety of materials (wood, stone, sand, mirrors, modelling clay, fabric) and processes (weaving, plaiting, drawing, making, arranging).
    Created by art educator Anne Bradley, this space was originally designed as a response room for Elemental, a sculptural
    exhibition for children by artists Caoimhe Kilfeather and Karl Burke curated by Cleo Fagan of Superprojects.


    Make Space would provide a contemplative, reflective place encouraging children and adults to explore a variety of natural materials considering their physical qualities: weight, texture, colour, sound. Participants are invited to consider how these everyday materials make up the natural and built environment around us. They are encouraged to manipulate and explore the characteristics of the materials through pouring, weaving, tracing, mark making, arranging.


    The space also provides a place for relaxing, open-ended, intergenerational shared play and the opportunity for quiet, reflective conversation.
    Ideally Make Space would be installed in a gallery space or other public context such as a library or museum.

    Premiere: RTE Jnr 11.55 am and 4.55 pm Saturday 12th June 2021

    (Excerpt) 'Where the land meets the salty water you stand, barefoot.  The sea laps upon your feet and in-between your toes. It’s dawn and the birds are wakening the land and as you lift your eyes, you see the sun peep over the blue horizon. It all looks mysterious today. You curl your hands to your eyes to make magic binoculars and as you scan the horizon you see appearing far away, where the sky meets the sea, a red fur-bodied, big-eared, white-chested creature sitting proudly on a floating log, the wise Red Fox'

    This radio play is a whole family audio adventure that transports listeners from the sea to the singing forest on an epic, interactive, musical journey of dancing and singing, frolics with curious creatures and fantastic fun for the whole family. You decide where the venue is; the comfort of your own sitting room, garden or forest. Turn on your imagination, tune in the radio or download the audio link and travel through rich soundscapes and beautiful music in the world of Fox, Bird, River, Sing!

    Commissioned by Fingal County Council’s Arts Office on the occasion of Cruinniú na nóg 2021.

It included tree planting, wood splitting and turning, mulching, and planting while learning about the ecology of our native woodlands and contemporary art practice in the open air.

    It’s an exciting time to be young in Fingal! The Dublin and Dún Laoghaire Education and Training Board has partnered with Fingal County Council and Music Generation to improve music education opportunities available to children and young people in the county.  Fingal is the latest area to commence participation in Music Generation, Ireland’s national music education programme which strives to transform children and young people’s lives by giving them opportunities to create, play and perform music in their own communities. ‘Music Generation Fingal’ will be established as part of the programme’s journey towards nationwide expansion, meaning that ultimately children and young people in every city and county in Ireland will have access to high quality, subsidised performance music education.

    Fingal Arts Office has teamed up with Poetry Ireland this academic year to improve access to the Writers in Schools Scheme for Fingal schools. The Writers in Schools Scheme facilitates visits by writers and storytellers to primary and post-primary schools. Funding from Fingal Arts Office will ensure access to the scheme at a reduced rate. Schools are now invited to apply for a visit by a writer or storyteller.

    For the duration of the Covid-19 crisis and its restrictions, you can apply for support for a virtual visit to your school by a writer or storyteller. Poetry Ireland will continue to support in-person visits upon formal agreement between the school and the writer and if in adherence with public health guidelines. 

    Please read on for more details.
