Unveiling of a new public artwork produced by teenage asylum seekers, refugees and migrants from Cork Migrant Centre.
Working with artist Kate O’Shea, and supported by the Glucksman and Cork Migrant Centre teams, these young people were invited to find creative ways to communicate their experiences of teenage life in 2020 Ireland. Looking at the artistic approaches of visiting artists Joe Caslin, Eve Olney and Aoife Barrett including post-ups, graffiti and sculptural interventions, they learned creative techniques to explore how public art can challenge ideas and incite questions.
The work, produced in August 2020, responds to the Black Lives Matter movement and the experiences of growing up in Ireland, calling for positive action and change. The online launch, hosted by Stevie G at the Cork City Library in front of the new public artwork, will invite you to meet the teenage artists and to learn about the creative process.
Artwork will be unveiled on the facade of Cork City Library on Grand Parade, and on Kyrl’s Quay.
