The final exciting event and showcase of the Cranmore Community Children’s Project will take place at Cranmore Community Co-Op offices on Friday, 15th March between 5pm and 8pm. The Cranmore Children’s Community project is a cross border project which began three years ago, with children from Cranmore community and Antiville Community, Larne Co. Antrim. The Model’s Education Department were kindly supported in this project by the International Fund for Ireland.
This event is the culmination of work with the children from both communities over the last three years, with highlights such as the sleepover in The Model in 2011. Already on Friday, 8th March, we had a fabulous celebration and exhibition in the Antiville Community Centre, where photographic stills from the project and the childrens’ animations were projected onto the two community houses in Antiville. This mini light-show was like an outdoor cinema.
The children from both communities worked with artists, Naomi Draper and Erika Reid and on 15th March there will be another magical display of the children’s amazing artworks at the Cranmore Community Co-Op offices. We are also delighted to showcase the animations and artwork by the children from the Antiville community at this exhibition. It will also be a chance for everyone to see the newly refurbished new premises in Cranmore and to get an idea of what is available for the youth in Cranmore; everyone is welcome to this fantastic community event and party and refreshments will available from 5pm to 8pm in the the newly refurbished centre. The Model Education Department would like to extend a warm thank you to Erika and Naomi, and also to Helen O’Hara, Project Development Officer in Cranmore and to Karen and Clifford in Antiville Community House, for all their hard work and for their help in making this project happen. Thanks everyone….
