Games Without Frontiers

The ‘Games Without Frontiers’ Public Art Project will present a giant interactive outdoor exhibition on Saturday the 29th of October in Doorly Park. Funded by the Per Cent for Art Scheme and initiated by Sligo County Council Arts Service, the project was conceived to get children living in the city to creatively explore and use their outdoor spaces.

Led by a team of artists, ‘Games Without Frontiers’ took place in venues across Sligo

Town during the autumn, where the children invented games, built sculptures, made

films, created songs and generally messed about - in a creative kinda way.

The venues which included the MCR Community Centre, The Northside Community

Centre and Caltragh Community Centre were paired with Doorly Park, Ballytivnan

Park and Mitchell Curley Park respectively. Anyone out walking may have seen such

unusual sights as floating sculptures in the Garavogue, or an art making machine made

from an exercise bike, or giant free standing wooden sculptures created in Ballytivnan

Park.

The artworks, games and videos created will be showcased in Doorly Park from 3.30pm

until 5.30pm on Saturday the 29th October. Come along and join the fun. For a sneak

peek at some of the artwork check out www.sligoplayspaces.blogspot.com.
