Community Arts Partnership – Landmarks Project – Sleibhe Dhuibh – March update

The Sleibhe Dhuibh group was made up of parents/grandparents and preschool children who attend an Irish language speaking school in west Belfast.



The design was orchestrated by CAP artist/ facilitator Anne Quail, who was careful to make it as child friendly, colourfull and interactive as possible.

Over 90 parents and children were involved in the creation of this piece, so it had to be carefully organised.

Each week the group took part in making the Landmarks artwork by rotating around three main activities, paint, mosaic and ceramics to complete a finished wall piece allowing the children to fully engage, have lots of fun and gain a huge sense of pride and ownership with their work.

The art piece is situated in a shared play area used by the school every day.

Speaking about the participants and the art making, Anne said,

“They were very committed and engaged throughout the project and the overall atmosphere during the sessions was one of total joy.”
