Description An important art publication from IMMA on a visual arts programme – the first of its kind in Ireland - with children from disadvantaged areas of Dublin. The book, launched by the Ombudsman for Children, also argues that every child has a right to lead a creatively rich and active life. The publication details a unique visual art programme involving community youth projects in the Bluebell, Inchicore and Rialto areas of Dublin will be launched on Tuesday 21 November 2006 by the Ombudsman for Children, Emily Logan, at the Irish Museum of Modern Art (IMMA). The publication, Mapping Lives, Exploring Futures, is written by Charlie O’Neill, playwright and arts consultant. The book provides a fascinating record of the seven-year Mapping Art Project. The book also contains an innovative manual, sharing this original new model of art provision. The Steering Group believes that the programme is a persuasive argument to the decision-makers, on behalf of all children, to put in place the effective infrastructure and resources to allow our youngest citizens to liberate the artist and life-mapper bursting inside them. This book provides the arguments, the evidence and the tools to do just that.
