I am honoured to be one of twelve artists awarded an Artlinks Bursary 2018. This is a fantastic opportunity for me and will enable me to drive my practice forward.
I am delighted to tell you that I have just completed two schools residencies. The first one is through the living arts program. I have had two residencies previously within primary schools via this project. This year differs in that I am taking part in an exciting new strand of the project- which is being run in secondary schools on a pilot bases. Through it I am working with Selskar College in Wexford town. http://www.wexfordartscentre.ie/education-living-arts-project-2017-18.html
I have also just finished a residency with Carrigduff National School in Bunclody. This is through the artist/teacher partnership via Wexford Education Centre.
Hong Kong & Macau
Just back after the most amazing trip to Hong Kong and Macau where I exhibited my work in a solo show the Anita Chan Lai-Ling Gallery in Hong Kong and showed it briefly in Creative Macau. I had great fun facilitating workshops in both venues. It was an honour to do so as part of the Hong Kong and Macau Irish festival. I also spent time researching for a new body of work which will be exhibited in a solo show in the new exhibition space in the Hook Lighthouse, Wexford in October/November 2018.
Many thanks to the Hong Kong and Macau Irish Festival and to Culture Ireland for your support.
