Our Nation's Sons - Ireland
Our Nation’s Sons is a cool urban art project aimed at provoking entire communities into addressing the very real problem of young male apathy & disenfranchisement in Ireland.
The project’s aim is to install large-scale portrait drawings of young men at specific locations throughout Ireland over the course of the coming year. If a picture paints a thousand words, imagine what a 125-foot drawing can do! This was the scale of our first installation on Limerick City's Dock Road.
Through the installation of these large-scale drawings we aim to empower young lads and give them a sense of belonging. By engaging them in the creative process, we give them the chance to be part of a social movement. Our project has the potential to resonate and disrupt the visual landscape of a village, town or city. It has the power to pull a passer-by from the mundane, the power to trend and the power to gain real social momentum.
