Children’s Books Ireland Artists’ Coffee Morning
The next Children’s Books Ireland Artists’ Coffee Morning will take place on 6th October at 10am.
This is part of a recurring series of informal yet informative gatherings on Zoom where artists can learn from experts and meet other creatives in the sector.
We’ll be hearing about A Way Home/ An tSlí Abhaile; an innovative exhibition at Siamsa Tire in Tralee. Advised by Children’s Books Ireland and as part of their Associate Artist scheme, the theatre commissioned Kerry based author Olivia Hope to research Celtic folklore and write a story inspired by the traditions and beliefs associated with Samhain. Olivia then collaborated with 20 Irish illustrators and visual artists, resulting in a major art exhibition for children and families. Those artists are Ciara Kenny, Tatyana Feeney, Úna Woods, Paddy Donnelly, Brian Fitzgerald, Katya Swan, Celine Kiernan, Margaret Anne Suggs, Eva Byrne, Sheena Dempsey, Linda Fährlin, Fergal O’Connor, Olivia Golden, Paula McGloin, Tara O’Brien, Lauren O’Neill, Karen Vaughan, Lauren O’Hara, Barry Quinn and Tony O’Connor.
If you would like to attend please email firstname.lastname@example.org by 5pm on Tuesday, 5 October.
