French artist looking for Sligo artists to participate in event in conjunction with the Model.

French artist Thierry Geoffroy will be arranging a series of events he calls Critical Runs in Sligo, from his home in Denmark in the run-up to The Model's reopening exhibition, Dorm. People are invited to run in three different events – organised so that political issues are discussed while jogging.

These three runs will happen on the 28th and 29th of April and will take place in the centre of Sligo town. Thierry is particularly looking for artists of any discipline, and people aged 50+ for two of the runs, but everyone is welcome for the third. The runs have taken place all over the world from the Brooklyn Bridge to Athens, Greece and are a great opportunity to meet new people, get issues off your chest and contribute to an art project while you’re on the run.
