CREATIVE works inspired by the lives and history of Pembroke Dock and the Irish Sea feature in an exhibition currently on display in Pembroke Dock Library.

The exhibition is entitled ‘Creative Connections across the Irish Sea’ and will continue until September 5.

The ‘Ports, Past and Present’ project considers five very different ports and their communities on either side of the Irish Sea: Dublin, Rosslare, Holyhead, Fishguard and Pembroke Dock. It aims to increase visitor numbers and enhance the tourist experience in the five communities, as well as raise awareness locally of the ports’ natural and cultural heritage and their importance to future economic growth. The project is funded by the European Regional Development Fund through the Ireland Wales Co-operation Programme.

The exhibition comprises extracts from the vast range of creative outputs of the project, including poetry and story-collecting, radio script, sculpture and drawing, animation and film. Combining thought-provoking words and images, these works reflect the richness of life on, beneath and beside the waves through time. It is hoped that this exhibition will inspire future journeys of curiosity.

The artists involved in the exhibition are Rua Barron, David Begley, Zillah Bowes, Gillian Brownson, Kathy D’Arcy, Jon Gower, Robert Jakes, Julie Merriman, Peter Murphy, Augustine O’Donoghue, Marged Pendrell, Hannah Power, Peter Stevenson and Jacob Whittaker. More information about their work for ‘Ports, Past and Present’ can be found on the project website: https://creative-connections.pubpub.org/.

The exhibition is open to all during library opening hours. Project leads Professor Mary-Ann Constantine and Dr Martin Crampin are available to answer queries: email [email protected], [email protected].
