The video below is a collaboration between the Access Service and Tipperary Rural Traveller Project (TRTP). Artist and Limerick School of Art and Design (LSAD) graduate Francesca Hutchinson facilitated a four-day art workshop for Traveller children living in Cashel. The children created ‘identity boxes’ which were showcased on Culture Night 2022 in our Thurles Campus. The video shows the children working on their identity boxes and speaking about what their identity means to them.
