Minister launches Typecast - ceramic sculptures created by Coolmine clients

The Typecast Project with partners: Create, Design & Crafts Council of Ireland, Coolmine, funded by Léargas through the Grundtvig Programme.

Mr. Leo Varadkar TD, Minister for Health launched the Typecast project with a display of ceramic sculptures created by twenty Coolmine Therapeutic Community clients, as part of their recovery from addiction.

The sculptures named Up & Down, Round & Round – Trying to Reach My Destination are displayed in the Coolmine Centre. The clients worked on them over a twelve week period, in collaboration with artist, Ms Kathleen Moroney, who shared artistic concepts, led workshops working with clay and produced the display of the artwork.

The Typecast project initiated and led by Create the national development agency for collaborative arts, in partnership with the Design & Crafts Council of Ireland and Coolmine Therapeutic Community, in conjunction with the European Lifelong Learning Programme.
