Bright Sparks Montessori – Rainbow of Resilience

Early Childhood settings reflect Brighter Days Ahead. Early years settings with a diverse range of practitioners, children and family backgrounds, were invited and encouraged to consider what ‘Brighter Days Ahead’ means to them. We have captured their creative interpretation of this through the voice of the child and those who care for them, based on the Good Relations Week theme.

Dundonald Art Corridor Exhibition

A reveal of artwork created by two young people who were supported by Dundonald Art Corridor, a community art project that enhances local community spaces.

The young people involved are local to the area and creativity helped them through lockdown and they have then used these skills to start their own businesses. They are an inspiration to other young people in the area.

This new artwork is on the exterior wall of the library and will direct focus to a public shared and safe space servicing all of the community.

One-piece with the support of Artist –in -Residence Jojo Stevenson is of Dundonald’s most recognised landmarks the Cleland Mausoleum. The other piece interpreted by maps from the Libraries NI Cleland Collection shows Dundonald Village and Grahamsbridge Road
