Forecast is a series of public art projects taking place in County Kilkenny this Autumn which asks us to look anew at the future of our rural towns.
Over Sat and Sun, 18th and 19th October 2014,
Seoidin O'Sullivan presents
This is a free public art event and is a part of the FORECAST programme of projects.
Meeting point; Scouts Hall, Graiguenamanagh. 11.00 a.m. Sat 18th Oct.
FORECAST aims to explore our common landscape and built environment through five thematic projects led by artists and architects; Sarah Lincoln, Seoidin O'Sullivan, Michelle Browne and London based architects Studio Weave will take place in Callan, Castlecomer, Graiguenamanagh, Mooncoin and Thomastown.
The distinct projects each respond to a specific theme: Move in Callan, Explore in Castlecomer, Protect in Graiguenamanagh, Play in Mooncoin and Gather in Thomastown.
In recent decades in Ireland we have been witness to much construction and development, and yet our understanding and connection to the processes and protocols of this development remains limited. The question exists as to how to engage effectively. Looking towards the future of our county, with environmental, social and economic changes, Forecast asks - how do we want our rural towns to develop?
The outcomes of these thematic activities and events will be included in a publication that presents the art projects as case studies and waymarkers for how our rural towns can develop over the coming years.
Forecast has been devised by curators Hollie Kearns and Rosie Lynch. It is supported by Kilkenny Leader Partnership and Forward Planning, and Kilkenny County Council.
