A group of 12 teenagers, all from the Kinvara area, collaborated with a group from Kinvara Areas Visual Arts (KAVA) on the project. The teenagers attended a series of smart phone photography workshops given by Markus Voetter, a professional photographer living in Kinvara. Each Smart Arts Kinvara participant produced a photographic image using their smart phone, all of which were used by a KAVA artist to produce a piece of work based on each image.
The photographs and KAVA artists’ work was exhibited together in the Kinvara Courthouse, a dedicated community arts centre and artist-run gallery from Tuesday 30 October to Sunday 11 November.
An opening of the exhibition took place at 7.30pm on Tuesday 30 October.
