Photography Open Call

A Day in Dundalk

Photography Open Call from An Táin Arts Centre! 📷
Friday 19th February | In association with The Argus newspaper

We are inviting your primary school to join us by encouraging your students and teachers to take a photo, which captures their life in lockdown on 19th February, to be included in this photographic exhibition. Whether you’re working from home, homeschooling the kids, enjoying the countryside, walking the dog or running errands in Dundalk town, we want your students and teachers to photograph something from their lives on that day and send it to us.

At a time when uncertainty is prevalent and our daily lives are in a constant state of change depending on the level of restrictions in place, An Táin Arts Centre want to capture a slice of life in lockdown.

The images will be curated into an online exhibition viewable on An Táin Arts Centre’s virtual gallery. A selection of images will be printed in a featured article in the Argus newspaper.
