The People's Land Trust is a social art project initiated by Cork based visual artists Marilyn Lennon, Colette Lewis and Elinor Rivers. As three artists we have been working together in partnership since 2018.
With support of research and development funding from the Arts Council of Ireland and Cork City Council Arts Office we are working with Berlin based architect Dr. Sabine Horlitz as our mentor on the formation of Community Land Trusts. Dr. Noelle English is collaborating as a witness writer through out the duration of the project. We are receiving support from Cork City Partnership on this project.
Recent events and exhibitions include 'Water Broadcasting Secret Stations' performative action & exhibition, Skibbereen Arts Festival (2019), Spare Room: Art, Architecture, Activism, TSB Building, North Main St. Cork City (2019). Commissioned for Sign(s) of the Time billboard project by Skibbereen Arts Festival (2019)
