At one time known as “Glen of the Spooks”, Gleann a’ Phúca as a term for creative engagement with The Glen River Park, responding to the ecological, cultural, industrial, and historical heritage that hovers still within this ancient glacial valley and contemporary urban park on the North East side of Cork City. Gleann a’ Phúca aims to document, co- create and develop material that will acknowledge and enrich awareness and understanding of the Glen River, its biodiversity, its rich cultural and industrial and historical heritage, bringing voices together to celebrate its place in the city and in the imaginations of park users.
The Gleann a’Phúca Website will be an online art project - an artistic living archive and a repository for creative activity in the Glen River Park. An ongoing blog curated by lead artist, Julie Forrester, will have ongoing contributions from invited artists, ornithologists, ecologists, climate change activists and Glen enthusiasts.
