Forum 2015 – Photo Mosaic Art Project

Forum 2013 Collective Art Piece

Forum 2013 Collective Art Piece


In the lead up to Forum 2013 people throughout Ireland took part in creating a collective art piece; hundreds of pieces of hessian cloth decorated with the initials of a someone significant were joined together to form a unique tribute piece that was unveiled at the conference.

Following on the success of this project we are pleased to announce that at Forum 2015 there will once again be an opportunity to take part in creating an interactive artwork celebrating someone significant in our lives.

A unique photo mosaic will be unveiled at the end of the conference which will be made up of hundreds of photos of loved ones sent in by the public and the Conference participants.   These photos will then be joined together to form an individual, stunning Mosaic.

To include your loved one in this interactive art piece just submit a photo – a family portrait, a snap of an important occasion, a memory you treasure, a moment of laughter or tears. Then, with the help of computer art experts Pollytiles, the photos will be brought together to create a unique art piece.

What do I have to do?

It’s very simple; just email your photo to and we will do the rest.

Closing date for receipt of photos is Friday 28th August 2015.

(we want everyone to be able to take part in this project so if you do not have ready access to email or find the technology too daunting please call us on 01 6793188 and we will do our best to assist you.)

Images can be old or new, colour or black and white – as long as they are pictures of someone who is significant in your life.   By all means send us more than one image – but not just repeats of the same photograph.  And please only send in images to which you own the copyright.
