Perceptions 2016: The Art of Citizenship

The 1916 proclamation declared it’s resolve to cherish ‘all the children of the nation equally and oblivious of the differences….that have divided the minority from the majority in the past’.

Perceptions 2016: The Art of Citizenship challenges this resolve bringing colour, energy, imagination and discussion to Cork city. While 2016 is a time to remember the past, it is also an opportunity to re-imagine and expand our perceptions of future possibilities for a brighter more equal society.

Perceptions 2016: The Art of Citizenship is a citywide celebration, a diverse multi-venue exhibition, showcasing national and international work of 141 artists from 34 supported studios.
