Visual art works and sculpture pieces responding to the theme ‘Home’ will be exhibited at glór in Ennis from today (May 18th) to June 16th at the annual Embrace for Arts and People with Disabilities exhibition.

Each year up to 300 participants with different abilities engage with local professional artists who teach a wide range of visual art and performance forms including environmental art, film, animation, textiles, mosaic, music, dance and drama.  This year’s Embrace exhibition and performance event presents a culmination of their unique, colourful, bold and sensitive works.

Established in 2001 and funded by the Arts Council the Embrace programme works with up to 20 organisations and 30 professional artists on its Arts & Disability programme to provide art and performance workshops for up to 300 participants per year.

For 17 years local and national organisations such as the HSE, Enable Ireland, The Dulick Centre, West Clare Mental Health and the Brothers of Charity have partnered with the Arts Office to provide and develop an ongoing successful Arts & Disability Programme for adults and children who have an interest in pursuing and enjoying the arts.

The official launch will be opened by Mayor Tom McNamara and Everest mountaineer and Elevate founder John Burke on Tuesday 22 May at glór at 1.00 pm, followed by live performances and a short film screening.
