The Turtle Doves are Access all Arts, a new performing arts group based in Clondalkin of 10 adults age 18 and up. The group is facilitated by Banba Behan, a dance and performance facilitator with experience working with individuals who have visual impairments.
Access all Arts will be taking part in UNWRAPPED 2013. They will be featured as our Two Turtle Doves!
The group has said about taking part:
“ACCESS ALL ART is made up of blind and visually impaired members who are interested in exploring arts, crafts and culture through creative and accessible formats. UNWRAPPED is our first project to participate in but we look forward to expressing ourselves through a number of mediums including art, crafts, creative writing, music and drama.”
The group recently took part in a touch tour facilitated by Victoria Durrer, event Producer, and Tony Fegan, event Creative Director and Director of Tallaght Community Arts where they got an insight into the overall artistic work for the event, its music, costumes and lanterns.
UNWRAPPED 2013 would like to thank The Square Shopping Centre for its generous support of this year’s programme.
