I would like to make you aware for a great project called ‘Cards from the Waterside’ which is being delivered by LAWPRO and supported and funded by Creative Ireland and Kerry County Council Arts Office.
Project outline: ‘Cards from the Waterside’ is a collaborative project between artists and communities in Kerry with a focus on discussions around the importance of good water quality. Three amazing artists will work with six communities through the county: Mieke Vanmechelen: Cloghane (River Owenmore) and Tralee (River Lee and estuary); Roisín McGuigan: Waterville (River Inny/Lough Currane) and Kilcummin (River Deenagh); and Olive Stack: Listowel (River Feale) and Castleisland (River Fahaduff and Upper Maine). In the coming weeks the artists will host a number of workshops within these communities where they will co-create greeting cards that depict an image that encompasses what the community values about their local water body and why it is important to the locality.
