Construct Fun! An exhibition of child-led adventures in architecture

Join us for the opening of Construct Fun! An exhibition all about architecture and play-put together for the Architecture Kerry festival, and facilitated by artist David Fortune for LCYP. The show is kindly hosted by Tralee Library and opens on Thursday 28th September at 4.30pm. The exhibition was constructed by children living at Johnson Marina Hotel Tralee.

Grounded in key building principles, and using cardboard and child friendly construction methods, Construct Fun! leads the viewer into spaces full of character and colour, where young imaginations remind us that the spaces we make our own can be joyful, playful and inspiring. Children have an urge to create and are naturally inquisitive. Given some guidance, they have built these vibrant structures. The children have created new worlds to find solitude, explore, build friendships and play. I hope the playful process that occurred in the making is visible in the finished pieces on display.”, stated artist and facilitator David Fortune, who led the workshop series which informs the exhibition on behalf of the LCYP at Kerry ETB.

Construct Fun! runs from Thursday September 28th to Thursday October 13th . Tralee Library is open from Monday to Saturday. Kerry Library is a supporting partner to the Architecture Kerry Festival and Kerry Local Creative Youth Partnership at Kerry Education and Training Board.
