Art Out Loud is a permissive space for children to talk about their lives surrounded by artworks from the Louth Local Authorities’ Art Collection (Taisce Lú).  As an environment for both speculation and discussion, the Basement Gallery, Dundalk offers a supportive structure for considering ideas that impact children’s analysis of both themselves and others. Here the stories of artists connect with the stories of children. As a result children examine their own perspectives, in relation to what they learn about the role of contemporary art as a channel for communicating life’s complexity. Read More

MAKE Symposium

Date posted: 19 February 2014

MAKE symposium explores ideas of making in Art and Technology with distinguished speakers from the fields of textile art, ceramics, digital technology, and science. It will take place on Friday, 7 March 2014 from 10-5pm in the Stack Theatre of CIT Cork School of Music. MAKE will bring low-tech and high-tech makers together to explore deeply the making process itself and how it connects us in our response to the physical world.  MAKE will look at how our open-ended material dialogue and experimentation is the same, no matter if we are closely hand-stitching into cloth, or engaged in hands-on discoveries with the components of open-source electronics. We hope to find synergies, insights, and inspiration as two parallel making worlds meet. Read More
