OUR PLACE ....MY PEOPLE
Beginning in February First and Second Years in Colaiste Abbain will embark on a cultural module entitled 'OUR PLACE....MY PEOPLE'.
Students will research, document, plan, interview, film edit, web formulate and launch an exciting web site about life in their locality in former days. Areas such as local history, folklore, archaeology, customs and traditions will be explored by interviewing some of the older citizens in our community.
Their work will be completed by mid May 2015 when their own web site will be launched at a ceremony in the College. The project will be facilitated by Michael Fortune, BA, who is a lecturer at the Limerick School of Art. He has vast experience at this type of work especially in the fields of folklore, film and photography. The project will be sponsored by NAPD and JCSP.
Students work will be exhibited in Collins Barracks , Dublin, as part of Students Creative Engagement Project 2015.
EXCITING TIMES AHEAD!
