Into the Light public programme
The Crawford Art Gallery http://www.crawfordartgallery.ie/ is a cultural resource that is open to everyone and entrance is always free. Our access and engagement programmes offer a variety of ways in which visitors can creatively respond to the exhibition Into the Light.
We invite Young Art Detectives to join us with a series of exploration sheets, which will run throughout the exhibition Into the Light.
The Thursday Club is an on-going engagement programme open to mature audiences. Each session takes place from 2pm- 4pm on a Thursday afternoon, beginning with a artist-led tour which will focus on selected artwork from the exhibition Into the Light, followed by tea, biscuits and chat in the gallery library, and finally an optional hands-on workshop.
Our Arts and Health Programme will focus on key works featured in the exhibition Into the Light, we are proud to engage with a group called Art+Minds whose aim is to support the well being of mental health service users through engagement with the arts in Cork. As will the gallery's visiting programme for people with Alzheimer's disease.
We look forward to all kinds of fun responses from our Saturday Morning Children's Art Groups who will seek inspiration in the gallery spaces.
Lastly, but not least, our Teen Programme, for 14-17 years, which runs on a Thursday evenings from 6.30pm-8.00pm, will invite teens to have their say.
