RELICS 2021 AD: A Ceramics Project by RADERS

Happy Christmas & New Year

To reduce RADE’s impact on global climate change (and do our bit to save the planet!), this year we have minimised our print run, and instead have created an e-Christmas card wishing you good tidings ahead of the Christmas and New Year.

Visual Art Project 2021- Wish You Were Here

RADERS worked with Sorsha Galvin who facilitated workshops to produce a series of collages using historical photograps from the Duchas Irish folklore archives and their original network.

The artwork produced by the participants was published in an e-Book via issuu.

RADERS are determined to heal and make positive changes in their lives using the creative arts.
