Cafes Carte Blanche, Clonmel Junction Festival (with Nina Tanis)
The Garden Menagerie was co-curated by visual artists and storytellers Nina Tanis and Fiona Dowling. The idea was to create a haven of rest and creativity for children and their parents within the busy environment of the Showgrounds Shopping Centre. The space would have a garden, a mosaic station, a dressing up corner, a drawing table and a storytelling corner. A major part of the project was to work with the teenage trainees that had signed up, encourage them to work with the public and enable them to facilitate all the different activities.
