The Scrappy but Happy exhibition runs from November to December in Powerscourt Townhouse Centre.
Dublin Simon Community is delighted to launch the 9th Edition of Scrappy but Happy! Since 2011, the Scrappy but Happy project has showcased the amazing creative talents by people who access Dublin Simon Community’s homeless and housing services with a unique publication and exhibition of artwork and creative writing.
Dublin Simon Community is currently commemorating its 50th year. Throughout 2019, we have been highlighting that for 50 years, Dublin Simon Community has been supporting men, women and children to close the door on homelessness. In this exhibition and accompanying publication you will see pieces of artwork and creative writing focusing on the theme of ‘closing doors on homelessness’. Participants share their personal experiences of how Dublin Simon Community has helped them close their own door on homelessness or on a chapter in their life.
We would like to thank the unbelievably talented participants who contributed their artwork and creative writing to this book. Despite facing huge challenges you have attended workshops and dedicated your time and energy to producing something truly beautiful. We are immensely proud of what you have created.
Funds from the artwork sold in this exhibition will go back into supporting our clients and our services. Please contact us on 01 635 4884 if you would like to make a purchase.
