A Book of Hope: An anthology of letters, poems and stories to connect two generations during a pandemic. Since the Covid 19 virus came to Ireland in the Spring of 2020, a lot of older people have been cocooning. They have often been unable to interact with the children in their lives, which has led to feelings of anxiety and loneliness. This book is a compilation of written word from them for these children. Commissioned by Clare County Council Keep Well programme.
Artist Ana Colomer and scéalaí Niall de Búrca are exploring each other’s styles and body of work, coming together to produce this animated tale. An original story, written and narrated by Niall, comes to life through Ana’s watercolour and digital animation. Produce for Clare Culture Night 2020
