A 1916 commemorative visual arts project through printmaking. Fifty printmakers from eight studios present 60 prints with their stories and travel around Ireland.

Tionscadal Comórtha Amharcealaíona trí mheán déanta priontaí.

Little Stories Little Prints is a 1916 commemorative visual arts project through printmaking. Almost fifty printmakers from eight printmaking studios around Ireland accepted an invitation to participate in the project, which aims to create awareness of little-known events or incidents during or around the time of the Easter Rising in 1916.

Information events were organised by the project coordinator to help artists research incidents and aspects of life at the time. The brief then was to create a limited edition (20) run of little prints in response to the research and to present them for exhibition with the stories.

During 2016 two sets of prints from the project are touring libraries and other venues around Ireland. In most venues the exhibition will be accompanied by a workshop for adults and/or children. The prints, along with the stories, incidents or events that inspired them, can be viewed on the website. A limited edition illustrated publication and unframed prints are available for purchase on request, through the website or by email.  

The project was devised and coordinated by Pamela de Brí, in collaboration with the Leinster Printmaking Studio, Clane, Co Kildare and assisted by Margaret Becker, Director and Manager of the studio. The project is supported by Co. Kildare Library and Arts Services, with supplementary support from Dublin City Libraries.

Is Tionscadal Comórtha Amharcealaíona é “Little Stories Little Prints’, trí mheán déanta priontaí.  Ghlac thart ar leathchéad priontálaithe, a bhaineann le hocht stiúideonna ar fud na hÉireann, cuireadh bheith páirteach sa togra seo. Tá mar aidhm ag an togra eolas a scaipeadh ar eachtraí nó ar tarlúintí a tharla le linn nó thart ar aimsir Éirí Amach na Cásca 1916, nach bhfuil mórán eolais futhu.

D’eagraigh comhordaitheoir an tionscadail imeachtaí eolais chun chabhrú leis na healaíontóirí taighde a dhéanamh ar eachtraí nó ar ghnéithe den saol ag an am. Bhí mar treoir ag na healaíontóirí eagrán teoranta de fiche mionphriontaí a chruthú mar fhreagra ar an taighde agus iad a thaispeáint taobh leis an scéal nó an eachtra a spreag iad. I rith na bliana seo, 2016, beidh dhá shraith éagsúla de seasca priontaí, maraon lena scéalta, ag taisteal ó ionad go hionad, idir leabharlanna agus ionaid ealaíne, ar fud na hÉireann. Eagróidh an Stiúideo Déanta Priontaí Laighin, Claonadh, Co Chill Dara, ceardlann do dhaoine fásta nó do ghasúir i mbeagnach gach ionad.

Is féidir breathnú ar na priontaí maraon leis na scéalta a spreag iad, ar an suíomh idirlíon: www.littlestorieslittleprints.com

Is féidir eagrán teoranta i bhfoirm leabhráiLeixlip Library; Galway City Museum n de na priontaí agus na scéalta a ghabhann leo a cheannach tríd an suíomh idirlíon nó ag littlestorieslittleprints@gmail.com
