Mobile shelters and Dream Depot

There’s quite a bit of interest in “shelters” from the art scene, with exhibitions that cover that theme (like Shelter at Kasteel Nijenhuis in Heino). Well, let me then point you to the project Dream Depot that I naturally find very relevant, interesting and also well executed, as it is led by the Irish-born, Amsterdam-based artist Fiona Whelan. (Mostly referred to as F. on this blog).

In January she conducted a first part of this project in Kildare, with a group of youth. They (the youth themselves) developed, designed and built a mobile hang-out under the direction of Fiona Whelan (plus help from the Kildare Town Youth Project and a local carpenter). There’s nothing for these youth in Kildare, nowhere to go – so this is their solution and statement.

On the pictures you see them taking the hang-out through the streets of Kildare a few weeks ago.
