Youth Exhibition

Also this weekend is the opening of the Youth exhibition at the West Cork Arts Centre. The exhibition, and programmes feeding into it are organised by me in my role as schools and Youth Coordinator there. The exhibition this year includes a multimedia installation by the Friday Night Youth Arts group who have been working this year with artist in residence Julia Pallone. Their exhibtion is called My Mind is a Map and includes a sound piece, a text piece an interactive map and an installation made of papercuts and shadows. The exhibtion also features work from the second level schools programme, a projection of drawings called Deep Woods inspired by an animated drawing by Anita Groener. Tess Leak was the facilitating artist on that programme. Well done to all of them. For more info see or details of the opening event on facebook here.


This coming Monday 19th April will be our graduation ceremony on Sherkin Island, Mary McAleese President of Ireland is the guest of honour. Lets hope the sun keeps shining.
