The Gathering Place will be a sculptural installation around which outreach activities and creative gatherings will take place over the next three years.
Participants will be offered opportunities to literally form the walls of this space from their own personal creative practices. The installation will develop and grow with the input of everyone, creating an ever-expanding structure which reflects the diverse and interconnected communities in Northern Ireland
An integrated public engagement campaign led by Voluntary Arts Ireland will map the journeys of the panels as they are created across Northern Ireland and return to be collectively be amalgamated within the structure.
‘We are excited to be embarking on a journey over the next three years to engage with all our communities to convene intercultural gatherings discussing our dreams, hopes and journeys as a society’
