Things I Love

  • Workshop

Artist Cas McCarthy will facilitate this simple book-making and illustration project for 30 children in 5th Class in St Patrick’s Boys National School, Castlebar, and 30 children taking part via Zoom from St Finbarr’s Catholic Primary School, Byron Bay, Australia.

Inspired by the seven-year participatory arts project Learning to Love you More by American artists Miranda July and Harrell Fletcher, children will be invited to make an elastic band bound miniature book using simple materials and asked to illustrate these books with images – drawings, paintings, collage – of things they love.

These 60 tiny books (30 of which will be sent via post from Australia), will then be converted into digital flipbooks that will offer participants and viewers wonderful insight into the social and cultural lives of 11-year-old children, spanning two continents during 2021.

Please note this activity is only available to the schools mentioned above.
