Arriving Into View – unveiling of mural in Fitzgerald’s Park.

Arriving Into View is an art project that invited teenagers living in direct provision centres in Cork City and County to work with the Glucksman and practicing artists over a six week period in Autumn 2017.

Throughout the sessions participants engaged in projects that investigated ideas of personal journey. Teenagers explored the processes and techniques involved in communicating stories and messages to large audiences while working with different mediums and artists.

The project invited 15 teenagers (ages 13-17 years) from direct provision centres in Kinsale Road, Glounthaune, Clonakilty and Drishane Castle to work with practicing artists. This was an opportunity for these teenagers to interact with artistic ideas and mediums and to discover their own creative and imaginative capabilities away from their prohibitive surroundings.

The culmination of the project is tonight’s public display of a large scale mural created by the group in Fitzgerald’s Park.
