1916 Primary Schools Project

IMG_5773NOV 2015 – APR 2016

Friend or foe: Which side are you on? Author Brian Gallagher began this project with an epic tour of D15 schools, with the intention of visiting every 6th class primary and 1st year pupil in Dublin 15. With readings and question-and-answer sessions, Brian explores with the pupils how page-turning fiction is created.

Using themes from this fast moving historical novel, three classes will be selected to work with three artists on a 10 week visual arts project that will see pupils learn about the 1916 experience in an innovative, artistic and challenging way.

The project will culminate with an exhibition of work in Draíocht gallery from Easter 2016.

Please note: applications for this project are now closed.
