Creative Collaboration Limerick and LSAD Postgraduate Researcher Gianna Tomasso invite you
to participate in the democratic collaborative creation of an art work. This art work will be made in
90 minutes. After an initial intensive 30 minute workshop in idea formation, the artwork will stem

Festival theme in mind:
This year the festival theme is Bridging the Gap’
It links with the symbolism of the ‘Three Bridges’ walking route in Limerick, and ‘bridging the
gaps’ in learning in our communities e.g. between young and old, rural and urban, returning to
learning, welcoming new communities, bridging regarding forging partnership links.
All participants are asked to bring three A4 printed images from Limerick City. These images can
be photographs or found images and will be used to initiate the conversation and final production of
the art work.
Various materials will be made available at the event. A projector, image software/basic mapping
software and physical materials such as pens, pencils, cardboard and other craft materials will be
available. A sound recorder, speakers and other tools will be available. Participants can bring
materials/objects they feel are relevant to their chosen images however no wet materials such as
paint inks etc can be used.

what we think art and art making is, and what can be achieved using the ambiguity and
indeterminancy art making affords.
The final works will be photographed and disseminated in an online gallery page launched on the
