Creative Generation is an Art in Education Programme run by Temple Bar Gallery+ Studios (TBG+S), in partnership with Mason Hayes & Curran. The programme aims to provide access to contemporary art for young people and their communities in Ringsend.
The programme includes in-class workshops with artists Atsushi Kaga and Barbara Knezvic, studio visits with artists Alan Butler and Damian Flood and a Young Curators project . Declan Moylan, International Chairman of Mason Hayes & Curran said “Art should be accessible to everyone, especially local communities. The Creative Generation Programme brings art to children and young people within their schools and communities. We are very happy to be able
to support our local schools and the gallery by exhibiting the work produced by the pupils in this programme”.
The Creative Generation programme forms part of a year-long collaboration between TBG+S, the gallery and artists’ studios
complex located in Dublin’s Temple Bar, and Irish law firm, Mason Hayes & Curran to mark the gallery’s 30th anniversary.
