About this event

Writer Jake Griffin will guide workshop participants through the park, exploring the significance of Haikus and how they relate to our complex relationship with nature. Participants will be encouraged to reflect on perspective, the use of space and the impact of our choices in a world of limited resources. This will be a relaxed, meditative event. No experience necessary! Please dress for the weather and bring a pen and notebook and a drink/snack.

Meeting point is the Weigh Bridge at 1.50 p.m.

Becoming Kin

Becoming Kin is a Citizen Led Programme, which forms part of the KinShip Project, is devised to invite engagement with communities whose voice and influence is crucial in addressing climate action. Join a host of free outdoor citizen led walks, talks and workshops run on the last Sunday of every month in 2022.

KinShip is an art project aimed at developing a sense of connection between the people of Cork and the ecology of Tramore Valley Park. This project is an opportunity to develop a new relationship with the park, modeling ‘care’ as a civic responsibility to all the inhabitants. This is a space to alter our mindset about the relationship we have with the natural world, to address the legacy of ‘throw away’ culture and to engage with new modes of managing waste.

See HERE for further details.
