A  journey of recording the past and present towards a shared future
Monday 17 April 2017, 11am – 5pm
All Our Futures is the launch of a photographic archive of group portraits of families and friends by Tallaght Community Arts.

In our tented photographic studio, we will reimagine the studios of yester-year. Photographer Jonathan Stokes will take formal photographs of 30 invited family and friendship groups. Each group will be photographed with an old photograph to link the past with the present. The story associated with each image will be recorded.

To complete the event, we will have an end of pier style cut-out where members of the public can enjoy photographing themselves and contributing to an online photo exhibition across the day.

All Our Futures re- imagines a time before digital cameras when family and friends gathered at photographic studios or photo booths on national holidays to have their photographs taken.

The archive will be continued over the next five years to invited groups each Easter Monday until 2022 as part of our Independence Anniversary Programme.

All Our Futures – As part of the Cruinniú na Cásca national day of culture,supported by Creative Ireland and South Dublin County Council.
