Make and Be

  • Projects

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 iteration of this project in Spring 2023 saw a series of creative family workshops on Friday afternoons from February into March 2023 facilitated by artist Olga Knukova, with assistance from artist Olga Khomiak who both speak Ukrainian and English, and we particularly welcome the Ukrainian speaking community to take part.

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. 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.
