Waves Documentary Film
We're delighted to share this documentary film titled Waves with you. Waves is an arts education initiative that connects young people, contemporary art and the political. It includes a series of artist-led workshops, an associated film, text and design commission.
Waves has seen Irish artists Clodagh Emoe, Sean Lynch, Ruth Lyons and Eoghan Ryan devise a series of compelling workshops for second level students in response to the rich context of the 1916 centenary. During this enquiry students and teachers from Fingal Community College and Hartstown Community School have explored ideas of zeitgeist, civic agency, collaboration, collectivity, public art, memorialisation and cultural representation.
Videographer Jenny Brady has recorded these dynamic investigations in this film. Composed by Distinctive Repetition, a significant graphic poster serves to complement the workshops and film, while also sharing a commissioned text by writer Sue Rainsford titled Disperse.

Waves is a partnership programme between Fingal Arts Office and Cleo Fagan, curator of Superprojects. Waves is funded by Fingal County Council as part of the Fingal 1916 centenary programme.
