Remembering 262 Civilians…
Welcome to the 1916 Sackville Street Art Project. Ireland is on the eve of a significant anniversary that is the centenary of the proclamation of the Irish Republic. There were more civilians killed during the 1916 Easter Rising than British Soldiers or Irish Volunteers. These men, women, and children who were killed have no memorial. They lie in graves in Dublin… some forgotten, until now…
Who can take part?
All About the Project
The aim of 1916 Sackville Street Art Project (now known as O’Connell Street, Dublin) is to hold an exhibition of houses in any 3D art form commemorating the lives of the ordinary civilians that were killed in the 1916 Easter Rising. 485 people were killed in the Easter Rising 1916, 262 of these were civilians.
