"We gave the gift of time. Which is represented by the clock. The silhouette 'Teeling's whiskey building' as it's a local landmark and has a phoenix on it's roof. We wanted to give the gift of having 'Time' to appreciate all the smaller local things, so the butterfly for the simple beauty around you (also my kid just likes butterflies). The heart for 'the time to love' and the 'teeling whiskey building coz it represents our locality and uses the phoenix as it's symbol. The bird is a symbol of hope, renewal, rebirth, immortality, resurrection, solitude and grace".
Mother Tongues worked in a diverse neighborhood with a group of families of primary school children. These children live very close to each other but have only created true bonds during the pandemic. The window art creations brought the children and their families together.
Mother Tongues is non for profit organisation that aims to promote multilingualism in Ireland through creativity and education.
