Event Summary

Art in Action was a 12-month creative project built on a collaboration between UCC Fáilte Refugees Society and the Glucksman working with children who are residing in Drishane Castle Direct Provision Accommodation Centre in Millstreet. The project sought to enable the children to have positive creative experiences, to learn art-making skills and creative approaches that would allow them to better understand and to share their experiences of the past 12 months.

The selection of drawings on display as part of the outdoor exhibition for UCC Refugee Week, offers an insight into the children's lives, sharing imaginative stories or cherished memories with families and friends, they also present the challenges of 2020 and offer glimpses of the children's hopes for the future. The exhibition is presented on the windows of the Boole Library, UCC to enable safe viewing of the artworks for students, staff and visitors to campus.
