TADA! children’s exhibition opens in Linenhall Arts Centre

We are delighted to invite you to TADA! which opens 3:30pm, Friday 22 Oct 2021 in the Linenhall Arts Centre in Castlebar, Co Mayo. The exhibition is a space for children that showcases creative ideas, artwork and children’s voices from more than 24 years of collaborative art-based projects.

The exhibition comprises several themed spaces, focused around: play; people; place; and pondering. The main inspiration for the exhibition comes from our extensive library of books made by children, for children, which span a wide range of themes, experiences, and artistic techniques.

The exhibition is interactive and will inspire children to play, think, read, and share. It has been curated by a panel of children and young people from across Ireland, in collaboration with our Associate Artist Vanya Lambrecht Ward. It will run in the Linenhall Arts Centre for 4 weeks until 20th Nov 2021. TADA! will be touring across Ireland over the next couple of years, just in case you miss it this time!
