‘Bray Now and Then: Building Community Expression through Creative Writing’ is a poster exhibition at Signal Arts by writers from Little Bray Family Resource and Development Centre opening on Tuesday 1st September.


The group of nine has had a six-month residency to explore, discuss and write in a creative response to their Bray environment. All are residents of Bray. The work includes a wide variety of artistic responses to aspects of the town and its environs: short stories, poems, memories and flights of imagination. All of the pieces are short and designed to be read in large poster format. On launch night, Thursday 4th September from 7 to 9 pm, a selection of pieces will be read by participants. All are welcome and admission is free.


Bray-based writer, Shirley McClure, who co-ordinated the project, says , “we have all learned a lot about Bray in the process of researching and discussing this venture. We want to promote the idea that literature and culture are for all people, along with the idea that literature and art are changing forms, no longer just in books or art galleries”.


The project is funded by IPB Insurance with support from Bray Credit Union & Little Bray Family Resource and Development Centre.
