And down it comes... Dave (axis' Maintenance Manager) has just taken down the final piece from our 'Space To Be Yourself' exhibition, a collaboration between BRYR (Ballymun Regional Youth Resource) and axis. A visual arts and writing project facilitated by poet Colm Keegan and youth arts worker Aine Crowley. Over several weeks young people came together to create visual responses to the poems they had written with Colm Keegan. After exploring various ways to engage with the world through poetry and prose, the group then wrote pieces that reflected on their own lives and environment. They were encouraged to write from the heart and to use where they live for inspiration. Everyone gathered for a final closing party last Friday in axis gallery.
