The North East Inner City (NEIC) initiative in conjunction with the Creative Ireland and Dublin City Council’s Arts and the Area Office have come together to create a mural to celebrate diversity in this area.
The installation of this mural is the culmination of a whole community effort. It was created for the community by the community. Larkin Community College, Bradog Youth Service, and CASPr after schools service have been involved at all stages of the project helping shape, build, and edit the image over a number of months (all over zoom calls) until they felt it was an image that properly represents them and was inclusive for everyone living in their area.
The painting was led Fionnuala Halpin and team but ably assisted by over 50 youths from Larkin, Bradog, and CASPr over a period of 5 days.
The project has been nominated and won a Garda Youth Award for how it has brought together member of the community.
The project was funded by the NEIC and Creative Ireland through the Social Inclusion Unit.
