DigiTales by CreateSchool

From: 29 Jul 2019
To: 02 Aug 2019
Age 10+ - We all love a good story! Especially in Ireland - it’s in our DNA! Combine this with the amazing possibilities that modern technology enables and you have Digital Storytelling - or as we like to call it - DigiTales! Through a programme of collaboration, critical thinking and creativity, Createschool (creators of BRICKFLICKS) teach kids to make art and tell stories with mobile digital technology. They can share their stories, realise their ideas and gain lots of new skills in stop motion animation, digital music making, photography & video, podcasting and more. All materials and equipment are supplied (including iPads). For personal hygiene, we would ask participants to bring their own headphones.

To: 07 Aug 2019
Julian Schnabel’s At Eternity’s Gate is a journey inside the world and mind of a person who, despite scepticism, ridicule, and illness, created some of the world’s most beloved and stunning works of art. This is not a forensic biography, but rather scenes based on Vincent van Gogh’s (Willem Dafoe) letters, common agreement about events in his life that present as facts, hearsay, and moments that are just plain invented.

Exhibition: Dissolving by the Worm Moon - Bassam Al-Sabah

From: 31 Aug 2019
To: 26 Oct 2019
Bassam Al-Sabah’s exhibition Dissolving by the Worm Moon will present new and existing works that convey visions of war, resistance, and perseverance. Using video, painting, and sculpture, Al-Sabah’s installations are concerned with how the past is constantly reviewed to meet the present. Examining the agendas and effects of children’s broadcasting in Iraq between 1970 to the present day, scenes of war and destruction are shown in parallel with fantasy and reality, the hero and the everyday, the make-believe and fact. As the juvenile fantasy breaks down into the veracity of adulthood, the links between violence, representation, and preservation are deconstructed.
