More Details:

Glucksman Gallery Viewpoints is a touring exhibition with learning resources for all ages and abilities. The Glucksman commissioned seven Irish picture book authors to respond to different themes within the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child. Artists Fatti Burke, Peter Donnelly, Chris Judge, Roisin Hahessy, Chris Haughton, Mary Murphy and Niamh Sharkey created new illustrations which were originally installed in the gallery spaces as large-scale mural paintings.

For Cruinniú na nÓg Cork City 2022, there will be two illustrations on display in each of the following libraries Ballincollig, Bishopstown, Blackpool, Blarney, Douglas, Grand Parade, Glanmire, Hollyhill, Mayfield and Tory Top Road.

Creative workshops around Viewpoints will give children the opportunity to develop a greater awareness of their rights and to interpret rights based themes through creating  original posters. See seperate event listings for more information on each workshop at the following locations:

11am-12pm Cork Central Library, Grand Parade 

1pm - 2pm Bishopstown Library 

3pm - 4pm Mayfield Library

Supported by the Arts Council of Ireland , the touring exhibition Viewpoints enables us to continue to share the potent realm of the arts as a place for young people to develop and understand their rights. The exhibition has been developed in partnership with UCC School of Law to consider the ways in which culture unleashes not just our imagination, but a critical understanding of self and the world. The exhibition builds on research by visiting Fulbright scholar, Professor Jonathan Todres, and has been further supported by Professor Caroline Fennell, Professor Ursula Kilkelly and Dr. Conor O'Mahony.


No booking required to view the Viewpoints exhibition in each library branch.

Booking is required to participate in the workshops however. Follow the workshop links in the 'More Details' section above.
