The Model announces two public projects for 2012

Your Object & Model Site

Your Object is an exhibition, planned to take place in spring 2012, to mark the 150th anniversary of The Model Building in Sligo. This exhibition will consist of people’s treasured objects to reflect the cultural region today. Everyone is invited to submit an image of his or her most treasured object to The Model with a short paragraph explaining why they value this object.

You are invited to submit images of photos, antiques, household items, clothing, family heirlooms, but we ask you to not send original items; an image and explanation is all that is required at this stage.

Model Site: What is your vision for the open space beside The Model? We invite you to submit your idea for the potential use of the large unused area at Connauhton Road, between the hospital and The Model. We invite you to tae a walk and look at the site. Would the space be best used as a children’s park, a community garden, a sports field, a new market area, an artists’ campsite, a new outdoor concert area? Share your vision and submit your proposal. Please limit your proposal to a three-page document. Images are welcome. Please note proposals will be used for a creative project at The Model.

Photos and accompanying texts can be sent in printed copies or digital formats.
Proposals are sought for these projects on an ongoing basis until January 6th, 2012.
Please submit these by email to (Subject: Your Object/Model Site) or by post to:
