I CAN COLOUR BETWEEN THE LINES
Large – scale project produced for Cork Midsummer Festival
From 2017 until 2021 Kath was the Head of Participation and Engagement at Cork Midsummer Festival. International projects she initiated and produced for Cork Midsummer Festival include I Can Colour Between The Lines by award winning UK artists Mark Storor and Stephen King with the residents of Knocknaheeny, Cork.
Funded as part of a ten-year new housing programme and commissioned by Cork City Council as part of the Per Cent for Art Scheme. The first phase involved over a 100 workshops with local residents all over the area. The second phase of the project used a house due for demolition. Leading up to the 2018 festival edition the house was transformed - with local help - representing different sides and stories of Knocknaheeny, past and present. At sunset on 21 June 2018, a JCB Digger carefully carried a Cherrywood table out of the house, with a public procession leading to a burial and wild flower scattering.
