The Shape of Quiet Feelings

Maisie Lee

What do you feel when you imagine climate change? What colour is that feeling? What shape?

What do you feel when you imagine climate change? What colour is that feeling? What shape?

Artists Maisie Lee (Ireland) and Jessica Wilson (Australia) asked children around Galway to use their imaginations to respond to these and other questions. Their ideas and imaginings are reflected in The Shape of Quiet Feelings.

This is an immersive experience through an atmospheric and sensory world, where children’s imagined stories and creatures take on myth-like qualities. By giving story and form to something that can sometimes feel scary and intangible, The Shape of Quiet Feelings empowers children and their families to consider new approaches to some of the big challenges presented by climate change.

A Baboró commission funded by the Arts Council Commissions Award. Supported by TRACKS co-commission fund. Co-conceived by Lead Artist Baboró Artist in Residence Maisie Lee and Mentor Jessica Wilson. Featuring the voices of children from Milltown NS, Scoil Salearna and the Baboró Children’s Panel
