Fall/Winter 2004

#4 - Mosaic Tallaght -

South Dublin County - Ireland.

"Bridges & Growth"

The fourth project for Mosaic the City took them across the county, over the Atlantic Ocean and to the land of Shylene's forefather's - Ireland.

"Trees & Totems"

In partnership with the Tallaght Community Arts Centre and The Adelaide & Meath Hospital, Mosaic the City hosted a "Train the Trainers" workshop series to introduce the future community unity leaders on the various aspects of Mosaic the City. For a week Shylene and her team taught about the heart of MtC and what Community Unity can bring to a neighbourhood, a community and a town.

"Hospital Mosaic"

Over 300 people came to join the 16 participants to create these four mosaics. Each of the mosaics represents one of the partnering groups with one mosaic created as a touring piece.

"TCAC as Junction between Art and Community"
