Better Words

EVA International


Better Words is an educational initiative by EVA International developed with support by Creative Ireland’s National Creativity Fund. The project seeks to empower children’s access and understanding of contemporary art through creative language. In 2019, the project resulted in the publication Better Words: A Field Guide to Contemporary Art and Culture, developed with school children in Limerick City and County through a series of guided workshops and artistic encounters at leading artists’ studios, museums and galleries across Ireland. Through creative facilitation and direct engagement with practicing contemporary artists and creative writers, children were encouraged to creatively articulate their experiences of art; improving literacy and experimenting with new word-forms.
