Miriam O'Connor Workshop
Miriam O'Connor led a workshop where a set of postcards were produced by the group and added to the exhibition materials. In keeping with the legacy project's aspirations that the exhibition would be 'generative', that is generate more content, items, and forms of exhibition making as it passes from curator to curator and group to group. Then postcards were designed by Oonagh Young and a small print-run was made. The images and text were devised with Miriam and each of the participants in the workshop have a set of the postcards.

'Support Surface' Workshop
Fiona McDonald, artist and architect, ran a workshop to make a 'Support Surface',with participants Adeline Hegarty, Karon Brennan and Martina-Kelly Harkin. 'Support Surface' was designed by Fiona as a multi-functional object that may be made and used in many ways by adults and children, to organise or to play with. In the process of making something together, the group open up avenues of discussion about ideas and concerns as well as problem solving. Fiona is the designer of the crate that protects the exhibition when in storage and in transit. Photos by Marie Barrett. Saturday, 23 May 2015.
Support Surface is an open source design by Fiona McDonald, who designed the crate that 'Still, We Work' travels in from place to place and where the art works are stored when not on display. Fiona gave the design to 'Still, We Work' as a gift in the spirit of the exhibition's origins as a 'legacy project'. A Support Surface can be made by anyone with basic skills. It is made from wooden pieces with one section painted with blackboard paint. When a Support Surface is made, it is up to the makers to decide what to do with it, and in the process discussions about whatever matters to the makers is encouraged while making it.
