Ballymun People, an artistic project designed by Elizabeth and Charles Handy and sponsored by Dublin City Council. Elizabeth has taken the photos of the twelve individuals, each with an object that means a lot to them. Charles has interviewed all twelve and written the accompanying text. The Handys selected people who are closely involved in the Ballymun community and asked them to share their experiences of the recent redevelopment and their hopes for its future. The exhibition offers a collective portrait of some of the people of Ballymun. In words and photos, twelve people who care about Ballymun and its future feature in the exhibition.
