Helium Arts

We’re delighted to have our new ‘Our World in a Window’ gallery exhibition stopping off in Cork, Galway and Kilkenny this week! The installation features animations and mechanised artwork produced by 49 children from 18 counties across Ireland as part of the Helium Arts ‘Distance Creates’ remote programme.

After the long and difficult year we’ve all had, we wanted to do something special for participating families to showcase and celebrate the children’s creativity in a public but safe way. A window gallery exhibition in different venues across Ireland gives families the opportunity to travel to their nearest location to enjoy the animations and provides a unique viewing experience for the general public. Check out the dates below for locations and head over to our website for more info. Please check opening times for each venue.

  • Galway, 23 July – 4 August: Galway City Library 
  • Cork, 22-30 July: Civic Offices at Cork City Council
  • Kilkenny, 24 July – 3 August: MacDonagh Junction Shopping Centre
