The Art of W/Rights Public Call
The Art of W/Rights: A literary Carnival of Arts and Rights
Outdoor Site-Specific Shows, Pop-Up Installations and Creative Conversations promoting equality, compassion and rights.

In the Open - Faoin Spéir
Funded by The Arts Council

Smashing Times International Centre for the Arts and Equality and partners present an outdoor programmes of arts activities in two ‘sister’ parks –Rathfarnham Castle park and St Enda’s - both located in Rathfarnham, South County Dublin – with projections onto Rathfarnham Castle located in Rathfarnham Castle Park. The grounds of Rathfarnham Castle Park (October 2021) and Pearse Museum/St Enda’s Park (April 2022) will play host to a carnival-style performing arts spectacle, an offering of intimate, site-specific, outdoor theatre, film and literary pop-up events.

A key part of the project is to directly engage the local community through an open call for stories based on the theme ‘people who inspire or have shaped us in some way’. This open call is asking members of the public to tell us who has inspired you, a person from the past or present who has inspired or shaped you in some way and who has promoted equality, compassion and rights in your life and the lives of others.

Over 100 stories will be displayed in a ‘digital book’ online via the Smashing Times International Centre for the Arts and Equality gallery and digital arts platform, set up to promote the arts for equality, human rights and diversity and supported by The Arts Council.

Artists involved in the project will be given the stories to read. A selection of stories, words and themes will inspire the creation of new artworks generating a ‘gathering space’ to celebrate stories of care and compassion and to act as a catalyst to generate creative conversations on visions for a better world. Stories will be used to create a digital book and and live performances taking place in Rathfarnham Castle Park for the annual Dublin Arts and Human Rights festival running from the 15 to the 24 October 2021 and in St Enda’s Park in April 2022.
