The Hugh Lane Gallery’s Make and Be programme is one that particularly welcomes international participants and encourages participants to speak in the language that they feel most comfortable with.

Make and Be is our cultural mediation programme.

The current iteration of Make and Be is a zine-making 6-week workshop programme for families with an African background with zine-maker, writer and storyteller Victory Nwabu-Ekeoma and artist Rema Hamid. 

From October 2023-January 2024 the programme was in Irish and led by artist Bríd Higgins Ní Chinnéide

In Spring 2023 the iteration of this project ran on Friday afternoons from February to June 2023 was facilitated by artist Olga Knukova, with assistance from artist Olga Khomiak who both speak Ukrainian and English.

Within this education project, we hope to encourage families from international communities within the DCC area to develop a relationship with the Hugh Lane Gallery and our programmes.

The first iteration of ‘Make and Be’ was in partnership with social enterprise Mother Tongues and ran from April to June 2022, and was facilitated by artist Nasrin Golden, who speaks English and Farsi. The second iteration ran from September to December 2022, and was facilitated by artist Anca Danila who worked with the Romanian community.
