Dublin Simon Community client’s will have their art on display in the Temple Bar Gallery from the 3rd-5th October. The exhibition is part of the official launch of the Scrappy But Happy 8! book and client recognition ceremony, which launches tomorrow from 2-5pm.
This annual publication of artworks and creative writing pieces showcases the amazing talent of those who access Dublin Simon Community’s homeless and housing services.
