SEVEN PROJECTS are being supported by Co. Louth VEC who have allocated €35,000 under its PEACE III funded 'Peace of Art' programme 2012.
Each project will work locally to address themes of sectarianism, racism and peace-building through the use of various mediums of art including music, film, theatre and sculpture.
The lucky recipients include Creative Spark in Dundalk. Calipo Theatre and Picture Company and the Upstate Theatre Project, both based in Drogheda, Pyxl Designers from Belfast, Music Generation Louth and local writer Laurence McKeown and musician Zoe Conway.
Displaced people, political prisoners and ethnic minorities are just some of the target groups that will be directly involved in these seven innovative projects.
