To celebrate Welcome to the Flock, the exhibition opening in Garter Lane this week and supported by IBBY Ireland, primary school pupils in County Waterford have been making origami birds.
These colourful creatures will hang alongside art works by more than 30 Irish illustrators. The theme of migrating birds highlights the challenges faced by the millions of families who have been forced to flee their homes to safety around the world. The multicultural workshop included pupils in direct provision.
Welcome to the Flock has been organised by Illustrators Ireland in association with IBBY Ireland and Garter Lane Arts Centre and Waterford Cultural Quarter. The exhibition opens on May 9th at 6.30 and runs to June 30th, Tuesday – Saturday 11am to 5.30pm & during evening performances. All are Welcome to the Flock!
