Equality and Diversity
We are proud to partner with UCC's Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Unit to promote and embed the principles of equality, diversity and inclusion across all areas of our work.
We facilitate participation in Glucksman programmes for people who may not ordinarily or easily access cultural experiences, and in particular the Traveller community and young refugees and asylum seekers.
12 August - 9 November 2018
An exhibition of photography by young asylum seekers, refugees and migrants on display on city billboards and in the Glucksman.
Artists: Damilola Samuel Akinbote, Emmanuel Akinbote, Faith Akinbote, Femi Akinlade, Sandra Olawunmi Akinlade, Jana Alkarajeh, Lilian Eberechi, Prince Charles Matsetto, Nanette Ndlov, Pahalavan Premareji, Thamarai Premareji, Craig Sibanda
Project artists: Maeve Lynch, Darn Thorn, Inma Pavon
Curated by Tadhg Crowley
Through a series of creative workshops, the young artists explored photographic techniques and imaginative approaches to making images. They were encouraged to communicate their own experiences through visual art.
During the weekly sessions, the teenagers, aged between 13 and 16, worked with project artist Maeve Lynch and Glucksman curator Tadhg Crowley to investigate ideas of movement and expression through photography. In workshops with contemporary dancer Inma Pavon, they explored improvisation and how movement can be a representation of individuality, while artist Darn Thorn taught the group about photographic techniques and ideas of scale, exposure and lighting.
We hope that you will discover the artworks in the gallery and as they pop up around our city.
Supported by the Arts Council of Ireland, the exhibition will take place at the Glucksman and throughout Cork city until the end of October 2018.
