Bringing art and creativity into a public space

May 28, 2014

The 2014 CDETB Sports and Cultural Council (SCC) Art Exhibition was mounted in the Atrium at Dublin City Civic Offices this April.

Guest of honour and presenting awards at the opening of the exhibition was former Ballyfermot CFE student Nicky Phelan.  Nicky directed the short film ‘Granny O’Grimm’s Sleeping Beauty’ which was nominated for an Oscar in 2010. His message to the audience was clear.  Find what you love, train to become good at it and you will experience immense satisfaction.

This 3 1/2 minute video captures the joyful atmosphere among artists, (from the very young to the not so young),  as they get to showcase their exciting mix of painting, sculpture, ceramics, print, drawing, mixed media and craft on a city centre stage in April.
