Living Arts Project Exhibition 2021 | from Thursday 24 June 2021 | Wexford Arts Centre
――― Online only ―――

The Living Arts Project is an artist-in-residence scheme for primary schools in County Wexford. The aim of this project is to provide children with an understanding and appreciation of contemporary visual art. This Living Arts Project online exhibition represents a selection of work produced by the participating primary schools.

Viewable online here.

The following artists and schools were selected for this year’s programme: artists Caoimhe Dunn and Aoife Banville with Bunscoil Rís Edmund Rice Senior School (New Ross); artists Deirdre Meehan-Buttimer and Nadia Corridan with St. Mary’s NS (Enniscorthy); artists Mary Claire Kehoe and Deirdre Travers with Scoil Naomh Maodhog; and artists Kate Murphy and Rachel Rothwell with St. Teresa’s NS (Gorey).

A mentorship programme ran alongside each residency and each artist nominated an independent artist or curator they felt relevant to their professional practice. This mentorship helped to ensure the effectiveness of the project on an ongoing basis, while also providing a positive critique for the resident artist. In addition, the programme helped to refine methods of engaging with the students throughout each residency. The mentors involved in the 2020-21 project are Clodagh Emoe, Els Dietvorst, Sarah Lincoln, Eamonn Maxwell, Ann Mulrooney, Una Sealy, Louise Shine, and Dominic Thorpe.

The Arts Department of Wexford County Council and Wexford Arts Centre would like to take this opportunity to thank all schools, artists and mentors involved in the project, and the local community for their support and interest in the project to date.
