‘Can we draw you out?’ A NEW FONT IS BORN from a community project…

in Bunscoil Rís, New Ross, a Primary School in County Wexford. Co-produced. Co-produced and curated by Mary-Ruth Walsh.

The project took the town's rich architectural heritage as a source of inspiration. The idea was to look again at our town, its buildings and unique architecture in a totally fresh way. We wanted to bring attention to the very fabric of our surroundings which is often taken for granted. We didn’t know that we were about to see the extraordinary power of line and drawing in a different light. Invited artist Elida Maiques, cartoonist, illustrator and filmmaker showed the children how to transform the letters of the alphabet into homes!

Supported and launched by www.kennedysummerschool.ie . Funded by the Arts Office, Wexford County Council and New Ross Municipal District
