Red Bird youth organisation in collaboration with Blaithin Quinn (artist and architect) present ‘Shaping Space’, an exhibition about architecture in the West End of Galway city. This project is funded by The Arts Council of Ireland's 'Engaging with Architecture Award'. Emphasis is placed on encouraging the public to engage with Galway’s architecture, with the aim of increasing awareness and appreciation of the built environment. ‘Shaping Space’ will also feature a walk and talk event: a member of Red Bird will guide the public through the West End and explain how aspects of local architecture inspired the show.
Red Bird explore a variety of media in this exhibition to create individual responses to the built environment. The eleven participants have created artworks that are directly informed by the architecture of Galway's West End. The works include a sound piece evoking the ambient sounds of the area, an interactive game about local architecture, documentation of an outdoor living room and a photographic piece about the Nun's Island Theatre building. The artworks were made during a workshop series facilitated by Quinn, a space where discussion and experimentation was encouraged.
