Sculpture Dublin – Ballyfermot Commission: Public Update

Tuesday 23 March 2021, 3-4pm (online)

Sculpture Dublin is inviting local people in Ballyfermot to an online public meeting to hear more about the planned sculpture commission in Ballyfermot.

In 2021, the grassy area beside Ballyfermot Community Civic Centre will be transformed into a ‘people’s park’ – a free, open, democratic, inviting green space for the benefit of its local community. The Sculpture Dublin – Ballyfermot Commission is a ‘participative’ commission, that will evolve through a process of consultation and collaboration between the selected artist, the park’s design team and the local community. It will result in the installation of a permanent sculptural work that responds to the new People’s Park and the broader context of present-day Ballyfermot.

At the meeting, Programme Director, Karen Downey will speak about the Sculpture Dublin commissioning process. DCC Landscape Architect, Suzanne O’Connell will give an update on plans for the park and Breda Marron, the commissioned artist will talk about her consultations with local people and how these conversations are informing her ideas for the sculpture. 

The meeting will be chaired by Councillor Vincent Jackson and the updates will be followed by a Q&A session.All welcome to join. To register for the meeting, book your ticket and you will receive a Zoom link in advance of the session.
