Exploring the River Tolka at Griffith Park through Sound and Visual Art

Bealtaine Project at Drumcondra Library

As part of Bealtaine 2015 participants were invited to Explore the River Tolka at Griffith Park through sound and visual art with artist Claire Halpin. This series of workshops in visual art took the form of an exploratory project over five weeks looking and listening to the environment, sounds and landscape of the River Tolka at Griffith Park. Participants were encouraged through initial field work exploring the natural beauty of the river as it moves through the park, to gather sounds, images and materials from which to work with creatively in the practical hands-on series of workshops in drawing, mark making, paint and colour. The exploratory work was curated and installed throughout the library and the online sound map can be accessed here:
