Inclusion, an exhibition exploring home and homelessness by children and young people opens in Kerry
Updated: Nov 2, 2022
'Inclusion,' an exhibition in the foyer of Kerry County Museum, opened last night for Culture Night. The show features a series of paintings and sculptures created by a group of young people in Kerry. The art group worked alongside the homeless charity Novas and artist Jeannine Storan. The exhibit explores home and homelessness. Thanks to Novas, the homeless charity, and artist Jeannine Storan for the hard work and facilitation
Novas engaged with artist Jeannine Storan to facilitate a series of workshops bringing young people together over a period of six weeks.
The group explored the theme of home and homelessness, which was an issue close to the hearts of the young people involved.
The aim was to work together to increase the sense of inclusion for young people. The show gives young people who are seldom heard to share their message. The art group speaks to us as a nation examining the central theme of homelessness.
The exhibition hosted by Kerry County Museum runs free entry from Tuesday to Saturday, 10 am to 5 pm, until October 29th. No Booking is required.
The Partnership works to promote child and youth creativity where access to creative projects is most challenged in Kerry.
Well done to all the children and young people involved.
