Getting Creative with Social Distancing, turning Galway into an Exhibition.

This project is designed to

1. Engage the Community

2. Engage local artists 

3. Assist local business through the recovery

Social distancing has been difficult for those of us visiting shops and restaurants. This project will turn the city into an exhibition. The exhibitions will be generated from calls out to the public and change every month. Each month will have a different theme including art, photography and poetry. Each theme will engage a different sector of society e.g. the poetry will be run in conjunction with local schools and each school will be asked to submit a poem for each year and these will be displayed through the city.

The theme will be launched each month by a local artist in that respective field who will announce the theme on local media and give tips and advice to the participants and help select the winners.

The panels that display the arts will be designed by a local artist.

Businesses will be encouraged  to promote the art and encourage their customers to participate and visit the exhibitions around the city and hopefully increase the footfall for shopkeepers.

Please note that the details of events listed above are provided by the relevant Local Authorities.
