To celebrate World Biodiversity Day 2022, the KinShip Art Project presents a weekend of free citizen- led events at Tramore Valley Park, Cork. Join us in the park for a variety of exciting walks, talks, workshops and performances over the course of two days.
Tramore Valley Park has been the site of great environmental change. From 1964 to 2009, this site was used as a landfill for Cork city. The remediated landfill site opened as a public park in 2019.
The KinShip Art Project offers communities in Cork an opportunity to respond creatively and critically to the ecological and climate action challenges we face today. The overall aim of the art project is to develop a deeper sense of connection between the people of Cork and the ecology of the park.
The KinShip Art Project is a long-term public artwork, developing a variety of socially engaged cultural initiatives at Tramore Valley Park over 2022.
This project is an opportunity to develop a new relationship (kinship) with the park, modelling care as a civic responsibility to all its inhabitants. This is a
space to alter our mindset about the relationship we have with the natural world, to address the legacy of ‘throw away’ culture and to engage with new modes of managing waste.
