Details: Developed during The Fire Station Artists Studios 'Artist in the community studio award commission' 2005, the Umbrella Project was an event based project that took place on 11.03.06 involving 6 walking tours, nearly 200 people, umbrellas and dance. The walking tours explored and mapped the changing physical and social makeup of the North East inner City of Dublin. The tours included a multi cultural shopping tour, a historical tour, urban wildlife tour, docklands tour and architectural tours. Each person carried umbrellas designed by the artist for the project. A local dance group called the Young Dramateers choreographed by Ger Toner performed 'singin' in the Rain' on route. The event was extensively documented with video and photography that became a film and a book. This project was funded and supported by TheFire Station Artists Studios, The Arts Council of Ireland, Dublin City Council,Atelier David Smith, and The Irish Architecture Foundation.
