The Silence..update

The response to the project has truly been overwhelming.The photography of Rob O’Connor of one night in March has produced some wonderful writing by the contributers.Some of it very emotional,funny & some of it possessed a great element of fear of the unknown.

Initially,#thesilence had a plan,the plan disappeared as the project took on a life of it’s own.The contributors are quite diverse,they are from all parts of the country,some of them have never written before,as the wonderful #kintsugi artist,Wexford based Mary Wallace,said “what would I know about writing I’m a visual artist”..her contribution is wonderful…Submissions for #thesilence project will close on June 1 & it will go live on June 27 & who knows where it will take us,at times I feel the journey is just starting…Pat Carroll

  3. Well… I do like talking! Maybe writing is about putting the words down silently. You have to trust that the reader will ‘hear’ your intonation, feel your emotion, understand what you have to say 🙂

  4. It’s always lovely to be included in your projects and shout-outs Pat. I am only now getting back to my arts updates and communications and I will be sharing news about The Silence. You have gathered an amazing group of talented creatives and this project gives voice to a global event that has been profound.
