We are thrilled to announce a unique LCYP exhibition opening at Kerry County Museum on Saturday, 11th November 2023, at 2 p.m. The exhibition, aptly named “Mixing Moments” is a heart-warming showcase of the incredible work that transpired during a project of the same name.
Mixing Moments brought together 112 remarkable individuals from diverse backgrounds, including younger and older members of Ukrainian, Irish, African-Irish, French, Indian-Irish, and English families. Through a series of engaging workshops and events, the power of music, art, and sound provided a canvas for participants to come together to express their experiences, be it pain, joy, or the inherent beauty of life using imaginative processes including art, drumming and sound recordings. It was a wonderful opportunity for people from different communities to come together using creativity as the common ground, where mixing, forging new connections, and making new friends were the goals of the day.
This LCYP-Kerry ETB project came to life through a collaborative effort with Áiseanna na hÓige Dingle, Killorglin Family Resource Centre, Maine Valley Family Resource Centre Castlemaine, Tralee International Resource Centre, South Kerry Development Partnership, Kerry County Museum, Tralee Bay Wetlands and the Lakeside Café. Funding was provided through the International Protection Integration Fund at the Department of Children, Equality, Disability, Integration, and Youth (DCEDIY).
