The Policing Dialogues Review
What’s the Story? Collective and artist Fiona Whelan
It is a 24 page newspaper from Rialto Youth Project about the recent work and practice of What's the Story? Collective; a group of young people, youth workers and artist Fiona Whelan. The newspaper which was launched by the former Governer of Mountjoy prison, John Lonergan reflects the work of the collective and documents their process as well as including commentary and opinion from a wide variety of related individuals.
To coincide with its launch in December 2011, Rialto Youth Project announced that the training that was developed during the Policing Dialogues residency in 2010 will be implemented as part of an induction programme for all future trainee Gardai in Dublin South Central division. The training intends to better equip future Gardai in ‘understanding areas of urban disadvantage and poverty’ and in ‘understanding young people’s behaviour’.
Policing Dialogues at the LAB was funded by Dublin City Arts Office, The Arts Council’s Artist in the Community Scheme managed by Create; the Arts Council Visual Arts Bursary and Atlantic Philanthropies
