‘1916/2016’ art exhibition

in Saint Patrick’s Cathedral


took place from Monday 3rd Oct to Wednesday 19th Oct 2016.

The exhibition was themed on the aspiration contained within the 1916 Proclamation of “Cherishing all of the children of the nation equally…”.  The group discussed this aspiration and applied it to their lived experience. Following their discussion each member of the group designed a symbol of an important aspect to their lives. They then carved the symbols in oak.

The symbols covered areas such as Homelessness, Education, Poverty, Health Care and Justice.
