1916 Artist In Residence Programme
Visual artist Katie Moore has been selected to be Artist in Residence to commemorate 1916. The aim of the residency is to provide the artist time to research and develop ideas in the creation of new art work, in response to the events of the Easter Rising, by working with the Jackie Clarke Collection. It also provides an opportunity to highlight the unique, nationally significant resource that the Jackie Clarke Collection represents. Katie is working in Ballina developing a piece of art that is an act of memory for the 1916 Rising. During the residency, which started in October 2015, Katie has facilitated the design and installation of a special artwork comprised of contributions by local people, which is being exhibited publicly at the Jackie Clarke Collection Building http://www.paperbloom.net/.
