Project Realisation Awards

Limerick Community Education Network will be working with the artist Christina Gangos-Klien to create a series of ‘one shot documentaries’ (1-5) minutes, featuring everyday events that can reveal the potential and beauty of subjective observation.

Donegal Chamber Orchestra will be working with composer Ian Wilson, interviewing them so that the members of the DCO will actively become part of an original composition, and musical transcriptions of fragments of the conversations will be used as the basis of the sections of the proposed 20 minute work

St Margaret’s Traveller Community Association, Ballymun will work collaboratively with artist Seodin O’Sullivan on the Nomadic Mapping Project

The re-formed Sligo United Trades Club will work with artist Seamus Nolan to devise a living monument to the club, its history and social significance, using social memorabilia and diverse archive material.
