Arklow through the eyes of strangers
Monday, 13 August, 2018
Students of the UCD Landscape Masters studio have been exploring Arklow and its surroundings.
In part 1 of the exhibition which opened on August the 9th, they invited us to join them on a unique visual voyage around town to reflect on their response to the town. Part 1 of the exhibition featured 30 large photographs, and films, of the students’ discoveries.
In part 2 this thursday evening they invite you join them again to talk about their analysis and plans for the town. Part 2 of the exhibition consists of drawings, plans, sketches, maps and notebooks prepared by the students in response to the town. Topics include re-Thinking Main Street, What makes a Town Centre? Bring Back the Beaches! Loving Central Park (the marsh), Why can’t I Cycle to School? 1000 Trees and Bushes (for Arklow’s Other Residents), Making room for the River and Memories of Arklow.
Interested Arklow residents are also invited to add their voices to the discussions by attending a talk, a walk and a tea party during Heritage Week.
You can further discuss the students’ work with them on Tuesday 21st August, from 18h-20h or you can join Lelia’s tea-party (Thursday 23rd August, at 16h) to talk about old times. Come and meet us in the library at one of the openings, or contact us to help organize the walk.
