POSTCARDS TO THE EDGE
Open Call. In August of this year it was announced that 159 post offices in Ireland would be closed, eighteen in County Galway alone. As the post office is still at the heart of a lot of rural communities and a lot of the smaller towns and villages, this will have serious consequences for these populations. On 30th January 2019,our local post office in Moyard will close its doors, and this will inevitably exacerbate the extreme geographic isolation experienced by many along this Western coastline. You are invited to send a postcard to the Moyard Post Office in January 2019, with artwork in response to this short-sighted injustice. All artworks will be displayed in the Post Office for the month of January, and then sold to raise funds for Interface, developing a space for artists in this isolated rural community.
