The Education Units in Dublin Prisons have seen a flurry of activity this year with the preparation of a wide range of projects and activities in memory of the Easter Rising in 1916.
There are art and craft projects, information booklets, posters and displays, visiting artists, guest speakers, music and voice recordings. Most events are planned to take place during the week starting April 25th as this corrresponds with the actual dates of the Easter Rising in 1916.
Project 1916 is intended to be educational and informative and engage teachers and prisoners with all of the staff, groups and services working in the prisons.
Representative samples of the projects will be on display in the church in Mountjoy West and the exhibition will be opened by President Higgins in June.
