Culture Night 2019 at Tuar Ard

The Totem Pole Project

For Culture Night 2019, Tuar Ard Arts Centre will stage an exhibition resulting from an outreach programme in conjunction with local visual artist Dominique Foley and six local primary schools. Dominique will visit a class in six schools to lead the children in the creation of cardboard Totem Poles, to be used to welcome people to their school, and commemorate their community and heritage. The Totem Poles created by the six schools will be on public display in the Bob Traynor Gallery at Tuar Ard on Culture Night. At 6pm, the exhibition will have an official launch, when the project and its participants will be introduced and discussed by Dominique. The exhibition can be viewed from 4pm to 8pm during Culture Night – admission is free and all are welcome!
