Brigid’s Circles – Creative Responses to the Circular Economy

September 15, 2023 @ 8:00 am 5:00 pm

In partnership with Monasterevin Sustainable Energy Community and Kilcock Community Garden and using elements associated with Brigid we will explore creative approaches to the Circular Economy with children and adults.
Circles are powerful symbols in Irish and international indigenous cultures and Christian or non-Christian beliefs. We will use the circle as our theme to express sustainable art in response to climate action and biodiversity, encouraging people to look at the world around us. Circles are symbolic of knowledge, wisdom and creation, values associated with Brigid which we need to reflect on in our society.

This project will commence in Monasterevin on the 17th of June, beginning by foraging for colour along the Barrow Blueway, over 4 consecutive Saturday afternoons we will explore natural dyes, eco-printing and botanical ink-making with the intention of creating community art reflecting our journey, which will be exhibited at Eath Rising in IMMA. Dates and venue for Kilcock in late July/August are to be confirmed.
