This Giant Tent  exhibition

An exhibition of artwork created by pupils from Scoil Íosa and Scoil Naomh Padraig Primary Schools, Ballina and the Involve Youth Project, Ballina.

The artwork has been created while working on the collaborative inter-agency book project This Giant Tent which is a celebration of culture and identity in response to the Travellers’ Journey exhibition in the National Museum of Ireland Turlough House.

It is a show created predominantly by Traveller children, as well as some of their young peers, engaging in self-directed educational activity. This project is part of a much larger national initiative to recognise and validate Traveller culture.

Admission: FREE. All welcome. Runs until 24th May.
Opening times: Monday – Friday: 10am – 1pm, 2 – 4pm.
