Sound and Print Project with Anne Marie Deacy and Aoife Barrett

Red Bird Youth Collective have just completed the first phase of their sound and print project and welcome new members to join ahead of the second phase, which will begin in February 2023. Previous involvement is not necessary.

In 2022, Red Bird Youth Collective worked with artist Anne Marie Deacy to create a sonic map of Galway City, which involved learning how to use recording devices, microphones and working with Paula Healy at Flirt FM to record their own radio show.

In phase two of the project, Red Bird Youth Collective will work with printmaker Aoife Barrett to create printed maps based on their sound work. The group will also be joined by other experts who will contribute to the final sound installation and transmission of the work, which will be broadcast live from Galway Arts Centre and can be tuned into around Galway and online.

New members are welcome to join this member led collective throughout the project and no previous experience is necessary.
