Description

Discovery, an exhibition by Peachy Dublin




What are the first thoughts and feelings that come to mind when people hear the term ‘Cancer Research’?

This is the question that we asked the public, giving them the opportunity to submit these thoughts and feelings through our virtual box. The response was incredible!

The submitted thoughts and feelings were then distributed to various artists who are currently making art pieces based on them.

By doing this we aim to bring to life in art form the public’s perception of what cancer research is and what it means to them.

We hope that this in turn starts a discussion with the public about cancer research in general.

These art pieces will be displayed in an exhibition, open to the public, taking place Tuesday 26th – Wednesday 27th September 2017 in the Tara Building Dublin.

This event is part of Cancer Week Ireland (cancerweek.ie).




The 'Discovery' launch night will take place Tuesday 26th September 2017 from 6-9pm.

Tickets are required for the launch night.

On the night there will also be short talks on cancer research and also performances by various artists. Check our Facebook page ir our Instagram for updates on who will be performing and the running order of the night.

** Light refreshments provided. Performers include: Rosa Nutty (songwriter), Dave Rock (Spoken Word Performer) and Rory Hughes, (musician).**

It promises to be a great night!

The exhibition will then be open to the public until 7pm Wednesday 27th September 2017 (tickets are not required for Wednesday).




The artists will be given the opportunity to sell their work, with at least half of the sale going towards the Irish Cancer Society.
