Kilbarrack's Ode to Banksy is accepted as a finalist in 5 International film festivals

March 1, 2017

This video is a tribute to the renowned street artist "Banksy" and a request for his help to take down a fence that has isolated the children in Kilbarrack from using the last safe outdoor space to play in. Kilbarrack is an under privileged area of Dublin, which doesn't even have one playground. The only safe play area was in an unused car park at the back of a community center in KCCP, which has now been fenced off to keep the children away.

It has been shown in Canada, the USA, Europe, the Middle East and India in a variety of well known International film festivals.

Reach Out Project (18-25yrs)

The Reach Out Project (Community Employment) - works with eighteen to twenty-five-year-old cannabis users and polysubstance drug users. Training and personal development are considered as essential parts of recovery (in the Reach-Out Project) with a particular emphasis being placed on improving physical and psychological well-being. The aim is to help people address their specific issues, whatever that may be, and help them re-integrate into the community and progress on to more fulfilling lives. 

KCCP/the Reach Out Project prides itself on helping young people become more adaptative to life's stressors by fostering a strong ethos on creative self-expression. The project does this by using art and video media as a platform for developing self-esteem and facilitating a sense of mastery. This material is used to "reach out" to the community, using peer to peer films and artwork, which is designed to challenge perceptions and educate the youth in the community. about drug use, psychological distress and generational issues of social importance.
