This exhibition is supported by Waterford Cultural Quarter.
A selection of art works from over 30 Irish Illustrators and a selection of works by local residents in Direct Provision.
Illustrators Ireland, in association with IBBY Ireland and Garter Lane Arts Centre and Waterford Cultural Quarter hope to draw attention to the plight of thousands of families who have been forced to migrate to safer places in the world.
On May 9th at 6pm we will be officially opening ‘Welcome to the Flock’ an exhibition based on the theme of migrating birds, and through this hope to raise awareness of a reality that has become part of the contemporary socio-political environment.
The exhibition is composed of two parts, the first being the ‘flock’ of birds postcards from the professional illustrators, the second being art created by groups who have experienced migrations.
Official Opening May 9th at 6.30pm and runs until June 30th.
Gallery Open: Tuesday – Saturday 11am – 5.30pm & during evening performances
