Exhibition Preview 25th of June. Exhibition runs until the 21st of July.
Seminar 26th of June

The Sacred Project an arts project working with communities in Enniskillen and Carrick on Shannon. The project culminates in an exhibition of National and International artists and a seminar in Northern Ireland. The project  roposed to use the medium of creating an exhibition as a tool to initiate conversations around notions of Sacred, Divinity and Spirituality by discussing the shared, experiential aspects of religions as opposed to focusing on their differences. By using the “Art Exhibition” as a platform for finding a commonality of interests in the groups, this project provided the participants with the rare opportunity of experiencing and discussing spirituality and sacredness in unfamiliar terms.

The works selected include a new 6 screen video installation by Daphne Wright called The Prayer Project commissioned by Picture This, Grace Weir’s Around Now; a Mariele Nuedecker tank piece titled Gravity Prevents the Atmosphere from Drifting into Outer Space; Fergus Martin, Table; and a number of works from both the IMMA and  ACNI collections.

This project has been funded by the PEACE III Programme through the European Union’s European Regional Development Fund which is managed by the Special EU Programmes Body
