A Good Night's Sleep

Rua Red commissioned Morag to work with the Irish Refugee Council’s Youth Service, DoubleTake Studio, New Horizon HUB, and the Tallaght Ukrainian community to explore the multifaceted theme of ‘belonging’.

Over 10 months the participants shared their hopes and dreams, fears and struggles through a series of intensive workshops led by the artist. The groups connected using the power of colour, word, and sound to express themselves. Weaving together the diverse journeys and perspectives of all involved, Morag has designed a series of built enclosures that represent a safe, secure, and warm space that forms the basis for A Good Night’s Sleep.

“Throughout our workshops, we have shared stories and listened to each other. The

discussions that emerged emphasise for me the importance of creating inclusive and safe spaces for individuals to express themselves authentically. Everyone has a story to tell, a perspective to share, and a voice that deserves to be heard.”
