Growing a Future

A team of artists and environmentalists from Tallaght Community Arts is working with community participants on this project to plant and grow the Cailleach in a specially created ‘wild meadow’ next to the Walled Garden in St Enda’s Park. Regular weekly sessions with participants and other park users is bringing people together in constructive conversations, new relationships and networks as we grow the giant figure.

A number of public events will mark the four seasons, including music, debates, spoken word and ‘dressing the Cailleach’ in August and a special performance in December.
