Friars’ Gate has always had a strong visual arts presence in the County where visual arts spaces are limited. They are committed to placing the visual arts at the heart of the community, to support artists and to promote their work to a County Limerick audience.
Friars’ Gate has a strong education ethos and are dedicated to giving all members of the community a forum for expression. This series of workshops will encourage an intergenerational conversation which will be shared with the community.
They will hold 12 creative workshops over a six week period via zoom. The series will be developed and led by Sheila Quealey. The guided reflection writing course will explore how to share our thoughts, observations, insights and opinions through the medium of creative writing. Using poetry, podcasts, novels and songs to ignite the imagination, the groups will participate in facilitated discussions of these works and reflect and respond together on their meaning. At the end of the series we will compare and explore reflections and share the outcomes in a public exhibition.
