In 2013, the Living Arts Project was established as a long term visual arts educational scheme, supporting the existing partnership between the Arts Department of Wexford County Council and Wexford Arts Centre. The aim of this project is to provide children with an understanding and appreciation of contemporary visual art. The Living Arts Project exhibition represents a selection of work produced by the participating primary schools and artists, offering pupils a chance to see their work presented in a professional gallery.
The following artists and schools were selected for this year's programme; Orla Bates with Scoil Mhuire, Horeswood, New Ross; David Begley with St. Senan’s National School, Enniscorthy; Clare Breen with St. Ibar’s National School, Castlebridge; and John Busher with St. Mary’s National School, Ballygarret, Gorey.
This year, in addition to the residencies in primary schools, the Living Arts Project included Ramsgrange Community School and Selskar College supported by the Creative Ireland Programme. An innovative ten-week residency was developed with each school by artists Oonagh Latchford and Els Dievorst, focusing on promoting artistic and interpersonal skills,and integrating cross curricular subjects.
