'Bray Now and Then: Building Community Expression through Creative Writing' is a poster exhibition at Signal Arts Centre by writers from Little Bray Family Resource and Development Centre opening on Tuesday, September 2.

The group of nine, all of whom are resident in Bray, has had a six-month residency to explore, discuss and write in a creative response to their Bray environment. The work includes a wide variety of artistic responses to aspects of the town and its environs: short stories, poems, memories and flights of imagination.

All of the pieces are short and designed to be read in large poster format. On launch night, Thursday, September 4, a selection of pieces will be read by participants. All are welcome to the launch night which runs between 7 p.m. and 9 p.m.

Bray-based writer, Shirley McClure, who co-ordinated the project, said: 'We have all learned a lot about Bray in the process of researching and discussing this venture. We want to promote the idea that literature and culture are for all people, along with the idea that literature and art are changing forms, no longer just in books or art galleries.'

'Bray Now and Then: Community Expression through Creative Writing' has been supported by IPB Insurance through the IPB Youth and Community Fund and by Bray Credit Union and Little Bray Family Resource and Development Centre.
