Beneath Our Feet

Why landscapes of the past are important for the future. Young people respond to Radical Archaeologies

From January - March 2024, over 800 young people from schools across the Cork region have visited the Glucksman to take part in creative workshops responding to the exhibition Radical Archaeologies: Unearthing Landscape in Contemporary Irish Art. These workshops were developed in partnership with colleagues from UCC's Dept. of Archaeology involved in the IRC funded IPeAAT project.

The young people worked with art facilitators to explore ideas of history, heritage, archaeology, climate change, biodiversity and how we can learn from the past to help shape a better future.
