Call out for Meath based organisations & individuals
If We Could See Ourselves As Others See Us

Dumbworld have been commissioned by Solstice, in partnership with Facebook, to create a new work in 2021. This work, If We Could See Ourselves As Others See Us, inspired by the year just passed and our relationships with public space during this time, will aim to reflect County Meath and its vibrant communities.

The first step is a period of local research and to help them, they are looking for County Meath based organisations and individuals to get in touch for a chat.
