In your shoes

 I am really excited to tell you all about an exhibition that will be opening this Thursday evening, March the 7th, in Naas, Co. Kildare. "If I were in your shoes" is an inter-generational community arts project.

50  participants created their own bespoke felt slippers and also have their own stories and personal portrait along side their slippers.

 
 This project and resulting Exhibition allows us to look at (and enjoy) the many benefits of Community Art. One of our members, Kathrina has facilitated the participants in the feltmaking process to create their slippers. The exhibition will tour Co. Kildare starting with Mc Auley Place on March 7th  and then internationally.


I have heard small snippets of the stories from Kathrina over the last few months and I am looking forward to seeing the slippers that each person made but also getting to read their stories that accompany the slippers.

Please click on this link of ran invitation to the opening night and more details on the Exhibition. 

The exhibition will be opened by the Mayor of Naas, Willie Callaghan

Looking forward to seeing you all there. And if you do get to see the exhibition, send us an email to let us know what you thought, or if you have any photographs you'de like to share
