CHANGEMAKERS

Online workshop that invites you to consider how to advocate for a safe, welcoming and playful Cork city for current and future generations as part of the Freedom of the City project. 

In this workshop, students will look at what changes we can make to ensure our city is a safe, welcoming and playful space for current and future generations. Join artist Shane O’Driscoll as we design a poster that identifies one significant change you’d make to life in Cork city. In this workshop students will explore graphic design including layout, colour, imagery and typography as they create their own individual posters.
