Child artwork gets a Glucksman exhibition
Participants of the Glucksman People and the Planet project in University College Cork lower grounds.

A LARGE scale exhibition of artwork by more than 350 children opens at the Glucksman in University College Cork on Wednesday.

People and the Planet is an exhibition of creative installations by children working together to explore biodiversity and sustainability.

The project facilitated schools, community groups and children living in Direct Provision to work with artists to develop artworks from recyclables and natural materials.

Creative sessions took place in the Glucksman as well as outdoors in the University lower grounds so that children could learn about their local habitat.

The People and the Planet exhibition includes artworks created by local scouts working with children living in Drishane Castle Direct Provision centre.

The integrated project brought children together to discover the diversity of nature.

Supported by Green Campus, UCC and the Arts Council of Ireland, the exhibition will take place at the Glucksman from November 21 to November 25.
