Better Words

Better Words is an educational initiative by EVA International developed with support by the Creative Ireland programme’s National Creativity Fund. The project seeks to empower children’s access and understanding of contemporary arts through language. The project will result in the production of a children’s ‘dictionary’ or ‘glossary’ of new Contemporary Art terms, developed by school children in Limerick City and County through a series of guided workshops and artistic encounters at leading artists’ studios, museums and galleries across Ireland. Through creative facilitation and direct engagement with practicing contemporary artists and creative writers, children will be encouraged to creatively articulate their experiences of art; improving literacy and experimenting with new word-forms.
