The Marking Time Art Trail is a collection of photographs and textile pieces exhibited in three locations across Clonakilty Town: the Library, The Community Arts Centre and the new dome at the Community Gardens. The works included were originally exhibited in the Glucksman Gallery in University College Cork during the summer of 2017. Clonakilty Friends of Asylum seekers are delighted to present them in their home town for Culture Night (and in the library until October 4th). The images and works were created by and with the residents of Clonakilty Lodge Direct Provision Centre. Further associated Culture Night activities will be taking place in the Community Gardens in A Night at the Culture Dome presented by Culture Le Chéile.
Clonakilty Friends of Asylum Seekers has been reaching out to and finding ways to offer friendship and support to residents of the Clonakilty Lodge Direct Provision Centre for many years. Sharing music, arts and crafts, yoga, homework club, community garden and social activities are just some of the supports they facilitate. They celebrate with those who have been granted leave to remain and try to relieve the stress of the many of those who wait for a decision about their future.
Please make contact if you need support or if you would like to join us in extending the hand of friendship to those who do.
