A Public Engagement Announcement from the Jackie Clarke Artist-in-Residence, Margo McNulty
Achill born, Margo McNulty, is the worthy recipient of the prestigious Decade of Centenaries Artist Residency, offered by Mayo County Council Arts Service in partnership with the Jackie Clarke Museum.
Her commission, entitled 'Keepsakes' will involve gathering examples of ‘personal objects’, mementoes or stories relating to the period of the War of Independence, the Treaty, and Civil War.
The artist is hoping to involve local people, families and communities in the county or the Mayo diaspora living abroad who have been the beneficiaries of these mementos.
If you have a personal object related to this period in history and would like to make contact with the artist please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call (096) 73508
This initiative is supported by the Department of Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport and Media under the Community Strand of the Decade of Centenaries Programme
