'Have Pass Will Travel' Exhibition

‘Have Pass Will Travel’ documents an active retirement group that meets every month to travel together to various destinations across Ireland. The group has over seventy members, all over the age of 65 from the Tallaght area of South Dublin, and each is armed with a Free Travel Pass.

During 2018 and 2019, artist Ste Murray accompanied the group to document their adventures through photographs, moving footage, and interviews. These images will be projected onto windows in three venues – Rua Red Arts Centre, The Civic Theatre and Tallaght Library – alongside audio content as part of South Dublin County’s Culture Night celebrations. Additionally, some exhibition content (interviews, film footage, and more) will be made available to stream and download online.
