Brief Description

Gaelscoil Riabhach’s Public Art Working Group have made the decision to commission Permanent Artworks for both the internal and exterior spaces of their new school. The exterior artwork to help express their welcoming identity, visualise their presence and help to express their vision. They wish the artist(s) to engage meaningfully with as many of their 183 students as is possible as part of this process. Various approaches and levels of engagement are welcomed as part of this Per Cent for Art project. Collaborative partnerships are also welcome, should artists wish to partner with another artist for this project. Fluency in the Irish language is not a requirement to be considered for this commission, however, the artist(s), the process and final artworks should be cognisent of and sympathetic to the central role of the Irish language in the school and the school's identity.
