‘Make and Be’ is our cultural mediation programme. This project involves a series of creative family workshops on Friday afternoons from the end of September though to the beginning of November. It is facilitated by artist Anca Danila, who speaks English and Romanian, and we particularly welcome the Romanian speaking community to take part.
The Make and Be programme is one that particularly welcomes international participants and encourages participants to speak in the language that they feel most comfortable with. Within this education project, we hope to encourage families from international communities within the DCC area to develop a relationship with the Hugh Lane Gallery and our programmes.
The first iteration of 'Make and Be' was in partnership with social enterprise Mother Tongues and ran from April to June 2022, and was facilitated by artist Nasrin Golden, who speaks English and Farsi. More information on that here.
