On a break - Axis Art Centre and Theatre

I was recently hired to work with those producing and choreographing a new dance project, the subject of which I found extremely interesting.
I met some great people on the first day, during which there was a workshop around the subject matter before they took to the stage to explore ideas. More to follow is all I can say for now! Mobile phone images below were before an during a break. 

The School of Identity Museum

I was recently asked to document the launch of the School of Identity Museum at Margaret Aylward Community College, which celebrated the collaboration between three schools across the North West Dublin area (Margaret Aylward CC, New Cross College in Finglas and Coláiste Mhuire in Cabra) as part of The National Neighbourhood: Press Play

The launch included performances by Temper-Mental MissElayneous and inspiring speeches from Helen Beaumont (National Museum of Ireland), Cllr. Áine Clancy, Emma Connors (Axis Ballymun) and Veronica Dyas (Artist) amongst others.

Over 60 students were involved in exploring notions of ‘Identity’ and the resulting exhibition included video installations, craft pieces & writing. Inspired by the work of the National Museum of Ireland, the School of Identity Museum brings the voices and ideas of a diverse group of young people together under one roof, with the exhibition ultimately exploring notions of identity, unearthing and celebrates young people’s creativity. The Museum and exhibition is curated by artists Rhona Byrne & John Conway

Images held back for press & social media images, together with those including young people, so a small selection presented here:

Lethal Dialect | In Your Living Room

I recently had the absolute pleasure of photographing (but better still, listening to) Lethal Dialect, in the most unlikely of venues. Monica, an absolute lady, who knows (knew!) little about rap, opened her home to friends and neighbours for this event in conjunction with Dublin's Culture Connects Press Play, National Museum of Ireland, Abbey Theatre & Axis Ballymun

Here's a pic of Lethal Dialect with more to follow.
