Uillinn: West Cork Arts Centre is delighted to offer West Cork Primary Schools an opportunity to engage with our Dance Artist in Residence, Mairéad Vaughan in a short summer project - Mapping the Divide. Mapping the Divide is a creative exploration into the effects of technology on our body, mind and environment. Uillinn invites three primary school groups to take part in a short series of workshops at school and at Uillinn. Two will take place in the school and one at Uillinn and will creatively investigate the impact that technology, and in particular the use of mobile phones, can have on us. Please see here for further information. Closing date for bookings is Friday 29 March 2019.
Visual Encounters explores West Cork Arts Centre and its exhibition and residency programmes as resources to the teacher and the child in the classroom. Through classroom-based projects, gallery visits, practical workshops, and talks and discussions for teachers, it aims to develop the teacher’s understanding and experience of contemporary visual art and its connection to Visual Arts Education and delivery of the Primary Curriculum.
Visual Encounters is open, explorative and child-centred, creating space for each child’s vision and using visual arts to explore a child’s view of the world.
Guided tours of the exhibitions are available for Primary School groups at all times of year. Tours cost €2 per student or €3 if you want to include a practical activity and booking is essential.
