Spring 2019

Future Spaces

An exhibition by Cork Educate Together Secondary School 1st year students as part of Cruinniú na nÓg

How can we create cities that are vibrant and diverse places where people want to live, work and move around in the healthiest, happiest and most sustainable way possible?

Future Spaces invited 1st year art students from Cork Educate Together Secondary School to explore this question while working with the Glucksman and contemporary artists on a creative project in Spring 2019. Under the guidance of art teacher Dawn O’Sullivan and artists Claire Coughlan and Helen O’Keeffe, the students had the opportunity to meet curators and architects and researched ideas of diversity, wellbeing and sustainability as they created a large-scale artwork for public exhibition. This artwork was displayed at Douglas Community Park on Saturday 15th June 2019 as part of Cruinniú na nÓg and Cork Midsummer Festival.

The project was funded by the NAPD Creative engagement fund.
