School Digital Programme
Flying the Flag
‘Flying the Flag’ is a celebration of children’s right to the arts, inspired by the UN’s Convention on the Rights of the Child. Embracing the theme of freedom as represented by birds in flight and the impactful action of planting your flag, three artists embark on an adventure by collaborating with children from across Galway city and county, with the children becoming both the designers and performers of the project.
Don't Forget to Wash Your Hands
Maisie has captured the thoughts, feelings and experiences of over 100 children and young people in Galway City and County during the Covid 19 Pandemic. The thought-provoking audio documentary from Baboró Artist in Residence Maisie Lee makes for poignant listening.
Into the World Within
Join Alex and a reluctant Nicky as they journey into the underworld through a pillow fort in their bedroom. The quest to save Uncle Petey won’t be easy, and in the Underworld nothing is as it seems…

Our Day Out
Imagine a big, vibrant city where you can do all kinds of fun things, and where there is always somewhere interesting to go and something exciting to do! In this series of paintings for children by Jennie O’Connell, we follow Moya and her friends and family as they explore their imaginary city through the seasons.
How much does a bull weigh? What’s the difference between a heron and a flamingo? These are just some of the questions that sprang forth through discussions with children as part of projects developed by Kids’ Own, led by professional artists and writers. The exhibition is interactive and will inspire children to play, think, read, and share.
