The first participants in the Apollo Project – second pic from left:  Oisin Kenny, Peter Lynch, Ellen Kane, Matthew McNulty and Vitalia Vikmametova – in the Grand Gallery of the National Gallery of Ireland at the launch of the Apollo Project for young people aged 16-25.

To wit:

Apollo Project is a new way to experience the Gallery, designed by young people for young people! Connect with artists, designers, makers and creatives at our monthly events. Hear about their journeys and careers, and learn new skills. Network, ask questions, and be inspired to make art and creativity part of your life.

In fairness.
