To the south of Cork City, near the famous Nemo Rangers GAA Club sits Tramore Valley Park, the site of The KinShip Project. The KinShip Project is one of 15 projects taking place all around the country that are being funded by the €2 million Creative Climate Action fund through Creative Ireland. These projects will work with communities to empower people to make real changes about how they interact with the environment.
The KinShip Project is a durational public artwork at Tramore Valley Park by Cork City Council in partnership with artists Lennon Taylor (Marilyn Lennon and Sean Taylor), supported by the Creative Climate Action Fund. Local project partners include Cork Nature Network, Cork Healthy Cities, Cork’s UNESCO Learning City, Green Spaces for Health, MTU Clean Technology Lab and UCC Environmental Research Institute.
It will provide a programme of artistic residencies, the design and building of a sustainable Eco Lab and series of creative exchanges and knowledge exchanges. All these elements will put the local community at the centre of the project. Full programme will be officially launched here on 25th January 2022.
