What are today’s symbols of Dublin’s collective (un)consciousness?
What connects us together, what makes us feel like we belong?
Can our shared history and memories help us shape a better future?
On Friday 25 April, the public in the city are invited to gather and become one collective body, carrying a fragile and giant hand around the streets of Dublin. At time folded, passing through small alleyways, or breathing in the wind – coming to life, the gesture and its meanings constantly reshaped by its inhabitants… will they find a place for it to open and rise?
From dawn to dusk, join us on the streets of Dublin, become the work, hear and share stories of togetherness. Exact times and locations for meeting points will be posted here, please check back.
Exact times and locations for the route are –
