Jamie Hendrick + Jonathan Myers
Jamie and Jonathan’s residency explored the questions such as ‘What is an Artist?’, ‘What is a Youth Worker?’ Their time in studio 468 sought to create discussion at a community level on the relationship between Art and Youth Work.
Before their residency in studio 468, they had been involved with Rialto Youth Project since they were eight years old engaging in a continuous series of art processes over 13 years. They first participated in the Mapping Project, a joint visual arts programme between The Irish Museum of Modern Art, three community youth projects and Common Ground. They were involved in a local visual art group in Rialto who explored their relationship to their local area manifesting in sculptures and murals including a public mural in Philadelphia. They were core members of What’s the Story? Collective, an interdisciplinary group of youth workers, young people and an artist.
