The House Party project was born from a desire from residents in Mc Dermott Terrace to re-activate the community house in their estate which had lain dormant throughout the pandemic. Mc Dermott Terrace Residents and the Residents association, have a shared priority to have ongoing and increased opportunities for interaction and creativity in the house and the estate.
In response to this need Artist's Liz Byrne and Phoebe Dick will facilitate a series of wide-ranging creative workshops in the Community House and in doing so will support the residents to bring together an active group of residents who will have a lead role in the running of the community house.
During the project participants will have the opportunity to experience a variety of accessible creative workshops. These will include to printmaking techniques such as collograph, drypoint and screen printing, clay workshops and much more.
The project will culminate in shared event hosted in McDermott House for the community exhibiting some of the work created during the workshops and live music and entertainment for all to enjoy and take part in.
