In August of 2022, for 16 weeks and finishing up just before Christmas, four groups within Co. Louth took part in an Art Programme called ‘Breaking the Mould’
The theme behind the title of Breaking the Mould refers to Breaking from Covid….those feelings of being alone, isolated and anxious. Breaking out of confinement, returning to a new norm away from restrictions and lockdowns and tearing down barriers to include people with disabilities into an more active and inclusive society.
32 wonderful talented people participated every week for 2 hours creating individual and group art pieces, tutored by four well-known local artists from Co Louth.
disABILITY Louth would like to thank everyone involved in this programme, especially all 32 promising artists in the making. To Louth County Council and the Participation and Awareness Fund for giving us the opportunity to give back to the disabled communities around Louth. Thank you to Dara, Shane and Mary from Louth Local Development for their support, guidance and expertise.
More pictures will be uploaded soon in the Gallery Section
