About this event


		Documentation Award Series: ‘Place’ Teacher Artist Partnership Project image

This event will be on Zoom and Facebook Live.

Place is a Teacher-Artist Partnership (TAP) project with teacher Alyson Hourigan and visual artist Tunde Toth in collaboration with the 3rd class pupils of Scoil Mhichil Naofa, in Athy, Co. Kildare with support from the Kilkenny Education Centre.

A child-lead project, the project focused on dialogical processes and modes of collectivity; conversations leading to discoveries of personal and shared interests, the many questions asked and discussed, and a collaborative making process. Place enabled all students to experience success at their own current level of development and thinking.
