New Wilds - A Series of Workshops Exploring Lough Boora Bog

Monica de Bath, award-winning visual artist and arts educator is re-examining our relationship with the bog and our collective consciousness around its terrain through a series of engagements with schools and local groups. Fluctuating between the macro and micro, this project considers both details of biodiversity and ecology of the area as well as the social and economical importance of the bog's deep histories.  

New Wilds workshops are engaging with two National Schools; Gaelscoil an Eiscir Riada, Tullamore, and Scoil Mhuire Agus Chormaic, Kilcormac. Sessions will also take place for families and local groups.
