Art in Action
A webinar co-hosted by UCC Fáilte Refugees Society and The Glucksman
The artwork above is entitled 'Same Storm Different Boats' and was created by one of the participating children in response to the past year of living with the pandemic.
This webinar will look at how art can provide a means of creative expression and agency for young people residing in Direct Provision. Speakers including Dr. Eileen Hogan of UCC and musician Raphael Olympio will explore how creative activities are crucial to young people dealing with their troubled living situations and how exhibitions and projects can provide a significant platform to share their experiences in the public realm.
This webinar is run as part of the Art in Action project funded by the European Solidarity Corps.
