Participants of the Embrace for Arts & People with Disabilities Programme have been taking advantage of the fine spell of weather by relocating to Dromore Woods to create environmental art works with artist and facilitator, Alan Shoosmith.
Run by Clare County Arts Office and supported by the Arts Council of Ireland, the Embrace Programme for Arts and People with Disabilities provides opportunities for individuals to engage with a wide range of art forms.
With just three weeks to go until the annual Embrace event at Glór, members of the Dulick group have been creating environmental pieces to showcase at the exhibition. Each ephemeral art work is created using elements such as wood, flowers, grass and berries which are gathered on site and also through engaging creatively with the surrounding environment.
The finished works will be photographed before being exhibited in glór.
This year’s Embrace Arts and People with Disabilities exhibition and performance event will be held on May 9 at 1pm. The event features a visual arts exhibition and live performance,s and will be followed by the launch of Brothers of Charity Clare Advocacy Platform’s exciting new Training and Awareness Film, ‘Safeguarding’.
