Waves, connecting young people, art and the political

Waves, connecting young people, art and the political

As part of the Fingal 2016 Centenary Programme, Fingal County Council’s Arts Office is working in partnership with Fingal Curator Cleo Fagan, founder of Superprojects*, to provide a unique arts-in-education initiative for two post-primary schools in Fingal.  The project explores the multiple layers of meaning and contexts associated with the 1916 Easter Rising and the commemorations in 2016.  The project links history and the everyday, bringing awareness to the influence of individuals, collectives and our material environment on social and political changes, past and present.  (image: Ruth Lyons, Pilot Light, 2015)
