sharing dreams with the world, from streets of cork to the virtual world- your input is needed
Art Encounter 2005 was an artistic exchange which saw young artists from Cork, Nicaragua and Columbia living and working together in Cork for the month of July.
The culmination of the months work was a public art exhibition in St. Dominic's Meditation Centre, Colmcille Avenue, Mayfield from 2st to 23rd July.
As part of this exhibition an art encounter tent was set up for 3 days in the city centre at Emmet place, a recently rejuvinated street outside the Crawford art gallery and Cork Opera house, in which a giant postcard was created on which members of the public were invited to share their dreams with the world.
here are some of the dreams.
the postcard is being sent out to the Venice Bienelle ("the art olympics").
We invite you, those in the virtual world, to share some of your dreams
What's your dream?

Dreams from Cork city to go to Monks Garden in Venice.
Mayfield community arts project, along with Muralismo friends from Nicaragua and Colombia will create an art event in a central Cork public space from where they will send a giant postcard to the Venice Bienelle ("the art olympics").
Art Encounter 2005 is an artistic exchange which sees young artists from Cork, Nicaragua and Columbia living and working together in Cork for the month of July.The fruits of their labour will be on exhibit at the end of the month at a public art exhibition in Mayfield and members of the public are invited to attend.
Mayfield Community Arts Centre have organised a free open top bus to run from Emmet Place in the city centre to St. Dominic's Meditation Centre, Colmcille Avenue, Mayfield from Thursday, July 21 to Saturday, July 23.
Funded by Leargas, Trocaire, DCI, Cork City Council and Cork 2005, the purpose Art Encounter 2005 is to encourage young people to explore issues of equality, while sharing cultural experiences and working together on a public art project.
Everything from photography to video projections to sculptures will be on exhibit and the open top bus will run every 90 minutes from Emmet Place. You will also have a chance to meet and talk with this group of young international artists at this time.
The Nicaraguan group, Funarte work mainly with mural and the Columbian group Centro Colombo Americano specialises in visual arts, cinema and performance arts. Both groups currently have six young artists participating in the exchange in Cork.
An art event will happen in Emmet Place during the three days, whereby the young artists will demonstrate their skills by creating a giant postcard using stencil and mural techniques developed over the previous weeks. The reverse side of the postcard will then become the canvas for the people of Cork to share their dreams with the world. The postcard will then be sent out to the "Monks Garden" in Venice which is the venue for artist Sarah Pierce's contribution to the Irish Republics participation in this years Bienelle, the postcard will hang in the garden untill October.
We are hoping for maximum publicity for this special event and this afternoon, tuesday 19th, will see the beginnings of the publicity carnival through the streets of Cork. Watch out for colour, music and dancing.
