Activism & the Built Environment: strategies for youth led interventions in public space, by current members & Peter Sherry. This workshop lead on from Red Birds most recent Engaging with Architecture project.
Since its inception, Red Bird has been supporting creativity and claiming artistic space for young people in Galway, and now, nationally. Over the years Red Bird has worked with artists such as Louise Manifold, Ruby Wallis and Dominc Thorpe, and has worked with architects Bláithín Quinn and Dominic Stevens. Although created by different members and different professionals, all the artworks in this exhibition are rooted in exploring and challenging the world from a young person’s point of view whilst claiming artistic and public space for young people.
