Street Art Ink is delighted to launch this strand of Floating Voices, the audio visual strand of our maritime arts programme. This is the first in a series of audio-visual stories focusing on celebrating the River Suir, its heritage and history. Waterford musician Cilian Jacob was commissioned by Street Art Ink in 2023 to write a song about St Johns Pil and this song was launched as part of Street Art Ink’s maritime and art tours on April 25th 2023. Watch out over the coming months as more of these audio visual stories appear across Waterford City.
Written & Performed by Cilian Jacob, 2023.
Video directed, produced & edited by Finn McFadden.
Produced by Analog Records.
Mastered by Richard Dowling at Wav Masting, Limerick.
In 2022, ReThink Ireland, a social enterprise organisation, contacted the Street Art Ink team to commission an artwork launching a national campaign on the importance of social enterprise efforts in the community. Waterford was chosen as the first artwork to launch this campaign. The artist who painted this was ADW (Ireland), installed in July 2022.
In 2022 Street Art Ink worked with local business and wall owner Fitzgerald Power to paint an artwork launching its national Floating Voices program. This artwork highlights the rich heritage of Waterford and its shipbuilding and maritime history. The artist chosen to paint this piece was David Maker (Spain) and this artwork is being installed in tandem with the launch of Street Art Ink’s Maritime guided tours in April 2023.
