Signal Arts Centre is pleased to present Melting Pot, an exhibition of mixed media by artists from New Dawn Training Centre and Festina Lente Foundation.

New Dawn Training Centre is part of Eastern Vocational Enterprises Limited (EVE Limited). EVE Limited provides, through its centres, a range of services in Dublin, Wicklow and Kildare to people with mental health difficulties and other disabilities. EVE Limited New Dawn Bray provides training opportunities for adults who wish to develop personal, social and work related skills.

Festina Lente Foundation was founded in 1988 and today is situated at the Old Connaught Avenue in Bray. The Foundation provides a range of integrated training, occupational, learning and employment opportunities to people whose needs have not been met by mainstream services. These services are provided through equestrianism, horticulture and community based activities.

The Creative Expression Module covers a wide range of artistic and literary topics of which visual arts is one. The visual arts element of the module is delivered by Mark Meakin. So successful is this part of the programme that several of its participants have gone on to study art and other subjects in the local VEC college.

Opening Reception: Thursday 15th March 7-9pm
