Thinking about the Dublin Canvas project and the significance of the poppy flower, I was restless to get back to Poppy Corner. My mission was tocomplete the task of bringing colour and creativity to everyday objects in Dublin city.
Dublin Canvas was set up earlier this year with a project idea to help brighten up the city of Dublin. An idea intended to bring flashes of colour and creativity to everyday objects in the City.
“Less grey, more play”
According to Dave Murtagh, Project Co-Ordinator of Dublin Canvas, the project takes previously unused public space and transforms it into canvases to help brighten up the City. Making Dublin a more beautiful place to live, work and visit. The project began as a pilot Beta Project commissioned by Dublin City Council in 2013.
