To create Travelogue, artist Theresa Nanigian collaborated with people who work and travel on the public transport network across the commuter belt around Dublin city.

Setting out to investigate the undocumented dramas of the daily commute, Theresa Nanigian embarked on a series of 'residencies', collecting travel stories and gathering data across all transport providers - Dublin Bus, Iarnród Éireann, Luas, Bus Éireann, taxi services and dublinbikes.

Their personal stories were presented on bill boards and other public display sites at Luas stops and bus stops, as well as in DART, commuter train and Luas carriages.

A special Travelogue website was established to present the complete set of Travelogue stories, alongside 'mind maps' filled with facts and figures relating to aspects of public transport, such as lost property.

Travelogue is a Per Cent for Art project commissioned by the National Transport AuthorityDublin City CouncilFingal County CouncilSouth Dublin County Council and Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council.

Greystones Educate Together National School appointed a voluntary committee with relevant expertise to oversee the per cent for art commissioning process. An external curator, Máire Davey, was appointed specifically for her expertise in working in a highly collaborative way as meaningful involvement from the students and school was viewed as central to the process. The procurement route chosen was limited invited competition.
