A new phase of the ‘Virtually There’ project will take place in Northern Ireland over a four-year period (2016-2020) funded through a ‘More and Better’ Grant from the Paul Hamlyn Foundation’s Arts-based Learning Fund. Virtually There is an artist in schools programme connecting artists, children and teachers through online residencies.

We are delighted to announce the following artists, primary schools and action researcher taking part in this exciting new phase:

  • Artists: Rhona Byrne and Helen Barry (visual artists), John D’Arcy (sound artist), Lisa Cahill (dance artist). These artists will join current Virtually There artists in residence Naomi Draper, Ann Donnelly, Julie Forrester, Ann Henderson, Sharon Kelly and Andrew Livingstone on the next phase.
  • Schools: St Colman’s Bann, Laurencetown, Co. Armagh; St Colman’s, Lisburn, Co. Antrim; and Killard House School, Co. Down will join the seven existing schools on the project with one further school to be announced.
  • Action researcher: Tracy Galvin.
