Emmalene Blake

Emmalene Blake is an internationally recognised street artist based in Dublin. This September, she will create a new mural on Swift’s Alley, inspired by the ideas and advice of children from that neighbourhood. Cities change and grow to suit the people who live in them. The artist asked children from local schools to tell her what makes Dublin 8 great, and share the positive changes in the area that have made life better for them and their friends.

Created in partnership with Marsh's Library, the artwork from the children that inspired this mural will be on display throughout the Festival. Go and check it out there Tues – Sat, 10am – 5pm, entry is free for the exhibition. Click here for location information.
