AN exhibition of the work of young people from Cork is taking place in The Glucksman Gallery in UCC until Sunday.

The Future Forms art project, which began in January as part of Cork Chamber’s 200th anniversary celebrations, invited participants from Cork schools, third-level education, and community groups to work with local artists in producing a vision of what Cork city will look like 200 years from now.

More than 1,000 young people have visited the museum and engaged in creative workshops exploring modern ideas of design and infrastructure in the context of developing Cork city.

Designs have been made for everything from sculptures, robots, and floating cars to green spaces and highrises.

“I was incredibly impressed by the gravity of care the young people have for the environment,” said Fiona Kearney, director of The Glucksman.

“The joy of an exhibition is how it all comes together, the diversity of ideas.”
