June – Nov 2013
A book project and national farm safety initiative led by the Health & Safety Authority, and delivered by Kids’ Own in partnership with the HSA and Kilkenny Education Centre.
Working with 86 children from all around the country, Kids’ Own artists Sharon Kelly and Orla Kenny and writer Jo Holmwood, toured to six education centres across the country, where the workshops with the competition winners took place. The children used collage, drawing & projection to create their artwork and developed their text for the book through conversations with the writer. Everyone worked together at the end of the workshop to create the page layouts.
The book – Only a giant can lift a bull – was officially launched by Minister Simon Coveney at Croke Park on Thursday 28th November, and will soon be in every school and library in the country!
