What is #childart4health?

One of Trinity's Tobacco Free Zones is outside the Day Nursery and Health Centre. To remind people that the area is used daily by young children, the Healthy Trinity: #childart4health Committee have permission to put art that would appeal to children in the area around the Day Nursery and Health Centre. The idea is that reminding people that the area is a child friendly place will discourage people from smoking there or dropping their butts on the ground where children may pick them up.

We would like to recruit an artistic co-ordinator who will work with students, children in the Day Nursery, parents in the Day Nursery and Trinity staff to make the area look more child friendly . Some examples of murals created in other parts of the world are shown below.

How Can I Get Involved?

We are looking for an artistic co-ordinator who will project manage the installation of the artwork. A job specification is available for download here.

The artistic co-ordinator will be recruiting volunteers to help implement the project. If you are interested please email Carly Bailey, SU Student Parent Officer on studentparents@tcdsu.org.

Who is the Healthy Trinity: Art for Health Group?

This is a Trinity College Dublin Students Union funded initiative being co-ordinated by representatives from the Students Union, the College Day Nursery, Healthy Trinity, the Curator of the College Arts College and the Campus Maintenance Team. The #ChildArt4Health Committee will work closely with Trinity's Grounds and Garden Committee.
