Kinship messages on a tree

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 Laboratory of Land Flags is an initiative of The KinShip Project with artist Chelsea Canavan. For more info, follow this link or read below!

Work with Artist Chelsea Canavan to design and create your own small flag to take home while contributing and co-creating with members of your local community a flag and its ritual for The Kinship Project and Tramore Valley Park. 

These workshops will explore and respond to the park space, multi-species inhabitants, and the decolonisation of flags as a metaphor for re-thinking historic land ownership and waste management.
