MURALS FOR COMMUNITIES GALWAY 2020 EDITION
Unfortunately this event has had to be postponed due to current COVID-19 restrictions. Rescheduled dates for the event will be announced as soon as possible.
Galway 2020, Waterford City and County Council partners with The Walls Project, and two European partner cities to explore, capture and formalise the potentials of mural arts as a tool for community engagement.
For Galway 2020, the initiative sees the co-creation of two original large outdoor mural artworks in Galway County, with two local community groups working with Magdalena Karol, an Irish-based Polish Street Artist and illustrator. Community groups include Aras Chois Fharraige Nursing Home An Spidéal and the Community Services Programme Inisbofin. This is done through the facilitation of thematic workshops with the community, based on local language, landscape and migration.
Murals for Communities is a Creative Europe initiative, co-funded by the Arts Council of Ireland.
