Clare Breen

Artist Residency

21 September - 08 December

Clare Breen will undertake a residency throughout the season, exploring the
relationship between VISUAL and its young audiences. Clare will work directly
with children and schools to explore the Main Gallery exhibition by Marjetica
Potrč, looking at themes of home, shelter, belonging and community. This
activity will take place through a series of workshops in the gallery space.
If your school would like to book a workshop with Clare, please contact

This project has been kindly funded by Creative Ireland Carlow.
