Clubhouse Members Artwork On Display At Crumlin Road Gaol

It was an honour for Clubhouse members, staff and volunteers to have Patricia Lewsley, Northern Ireland Commissioner for Children and Young People as guest speaker at the event. John Cooley, Chair of Springvale Training Ltd chaired proceedings and spoke about the positive changes that members of the Clubhouse are making. Two Clubhouse members also took the stage to talk about their cross community work at the Clubhouse. The members talked about how the Clubhouse has changed and helped them develop into confident learners.

The artworks are a culmination of digital media workshops, cross community and cross border collaborations that participants have created, invented and designed to reflect their own interpretation on the ‘No Limits’ festival theme. Members from the SWICN, Dublin, Amman, Jordan and Zabota, Russia supported the BCCH Festival took part in the ‘Think Outside the Box’ regional collaboration which are now on display at the Gaol.

Due to its historic past "The Crumlin Road Gaol" is an excellent venue as it reflects turbulence and troubles that have gone before. Now a place of culture, the Crumlin Road Gaol is an ideal location to showcase the work of our young people. The past impacts on our children and young people. At our Computer Clubhouse, we work at the acceptance of the past, at the same time, moving forward is vital, therein lies our challenge", says Clubhouse Coordinator Geraldine Cunningham-Carmichael.

The Belfast Computer Clubhouse No Limits Exhibition will run from Tuesday 11th until Friday 21st August 2009 from 11am to 4pm. For guided Gaol tours from Thursday to Sunday contact the Belfast Welcome Centre on 028 90 246609. Admission by pre-booked tickets only.
