During the COVID-19 pandemic, Irish artists, musicians, theatre producers, writers and all other creative and culture producers, including vital behind the scenes supporting professions, are having more asked of them with less support than ever before.

​​​#GRASPTHEARTS is asking for participation in a “show of hands” from within the sector, to highlight the importance of our creative industries across our society, in terms of job provision, education, entertainment, tourism and annual financial and cultural revenue.

​​​#GRASPTHEARTS want to highlight the force of numbers working within the sector, which includes anybody from artists, musicians, writers, performers, curators, administrators, invigilators, framers, sound technicians and many many more. ​​​#GRASPTHEARTS call on all of them to participate in a ‘show of hands’ to create a ‘grasp’ on the reality of the numbers affected and issues as they currently stand.

To participate with a simple “make & share” arts-based project, please check out the website for further updates and instructions: www.graspthearts.com

#graspthearts was devised by visual artist Niamh O’Connor in collaboration with AAEX (​Art As Exchange) Co.Louth. ​All enquires regarding this project please to graspthearts@gmail.com
