AN ECOLOGICAL FLOATING ARTS LAB CONNECTING COMMUNITIES ACROSS IRELAND TO BUILD A ZERO CARBON FUTURE.

ARTS COUNCIL OPEN CALL AWARD & SFI DISCOVER AWARD 2021

The 48M, a historic barge built in 1929, will be transformed into an carbon neutral vessel through a countrywide effort - a symbol of our growth towards a green future - undertaking a two year voyage across the country on the inland waterways and working with artist, scientists and communities to harness our collective imagination and spark climate action.

AN ADAPTABLE PLATFORM

As we move along the waterways, the Eco Showboat will need to adapt to the different contexts, different audiences, different arts projects, different orientations, different weather at each stop-point.

Adaptability has become central to the design of the boat as a platform, especially in relation to the unpredictable evolution of the Covid crisis, which has pushed us to keep our public activities outside.

A COVERED OUTDOOR VENUE, adaptable to many different types of art installation, accessible to all publics.

A STAGE that can be set up to host live events with the public on the quayside and only performers coming onboard
