For eight weeks throughout the summer the group of young people, aged between 10 and 17, met every Friday to work with artists Garreth Joyce and Jane Groves on several garden-based art projects that were unveiled last night.

Paintings, murals, sensory art pieces and models of spirit animals all contribute to the atmosphere of colour and creativity at the busy Youth Centre.

This project has been made in collaboration with the children of CLAY and artists Garreth Joyce and Jane Groves, in partnership with Dublin City Council’s public libraries, South East Area office, Arts Office and the National Gallery of Ireland and the National Museum of Ireland as part of The National Neighbourhood.
