Physical Graffiti

Cork Uprising

Crawford College of Art and Design (Cork) + School of Visual Arts (New York)

An interactive experience for art therapy trainees from Crawford College of Art and Design and the School of Visual Arts.

The art therapy studio can include the world-at-large.

Outside, making a statement, and erupting within everyday places—graffiti is making an impression upon a physical location.

Graffiti is an artistic enterprise, claiming territory and making one’s mark upon the scenes where people live out their lives. As a form of public art, “it is the strength of feeling that these artworks engender that is so enrapturing” (John Fekner, The World Atlas of Street Art and Graffiti).

Art therapy contributes to civic dialogue – art therapy asking complicated questions about expression and representation in civil society.
