Community Publishing Initiative

We have spent a fantastic few days engaging with schools in Dublin to make books. This community publishing initiative with school children took part in Coolock, Cabra and Ballyfermot libraries.

We provided a space for local school children – within the democratic environment of their local library – to make books, and develop artwork and stories that explore themes of identity and belonging, nature and the built environment, community and connectivity, and diversity of language and experience.

A big thank you to the libraries for all their help in providing a space for these creative sessions to take place. We have a few more sessions to complete but could not wait to show you some of the amazing work being produced.
