On Saturday 20th February, our Landmarks Project co-ordinator and artist, Carole Kane, delivered the first ‘All Names Known’ paper making workshops in the Falls Park Bowling Pavilion. This is one of a range of creative ways that the public has been responding to this public consultation, which concludes next week.
“All Names Known” is the public consultation delivered by Community Arts Partnership for Belfast City Council. We are using arts techniques to develop an appropriate response and inspire a piece of public art to acknowledge the deceased in the “Public Baby Plot”, Belfast City Cemetery.
This is a highly sensitive situation dealing with a deep sense of loss for many families, identity and acknowledgment.
The arts are providing a means of connection for these difficult themes, questions and the people involved. Many are finding some answers to questions which have shadowed them for decades.
The consultation is almost closed but if you would like to contribute, whether you are directly effected or as a member of the empathising public, please send your messages of compassion to Carole Kane (firstname.lastname@example.org) or fill in this online form by this Friday, 26th February: goo.gl/forms/JBh0hfguJ8
