13 April - 30 May 2013
Pssst… limited availability for schools/community groups to get a free test drive of our new Travelling Virtual Gallery in the comfort of your own classroom plus accompanying workshops in response to the exhibition…. all we ask for is a little of your feedback.
In conjunction with the guidelines advised by the NI curriculum in respect of the arts, MCAC aims to deliver a highly stimulating and engaging Education programme which encourages development of thinking skills through connected learning processes; essential when exploring and extending imagination and experience of the world.
As an extension of these thought processes, we aim to delve further into on a creative journey through the mindscape, understanding our personal journeys with memory and experience.
Exhibition: 13 April – 30 May 2013
Anthony Haughey: Citizen
Anthony Haughey’s Citizen is a new exhibition and installation of film and photographic work around the themes of borders and transnational migration. Borders and transnational migration has been a major theme of Haughey’s art practice for more than twenty-years. Although his work has encompassed a wide range of subjects, he has continually returned to this on-going investigation of what Saskia Sassen describes as ‘informal citizenship’, where migrants contest the right to move freely across borders in search of a better life. The movement of people across continents, seas and oceans is no longer fixed to a specific sense of place; migrants exist in-between states, attempting to negotiate citizenship with reluctant hosts. Despite the current economic crisis, migration is a global phenomenon that is here to stay.

MCAC invites all primary schools to a full day event which explores, ‘What is Culture?’ through thematic based seminars and interpersonal skills, participants will explore and share tradition and heritage. FREE event (early booking essential)

Key stage 3 – 4: Borders/disused temporary
Disused Temporary – In Ireland migrants have sought refuge within Mosney; originally built as a holiday resort for families.

This is a chance for young citizens to voice their ideas and project their visions into the town.
