Anne-Marie Dillon


Anne-Marie Dillon is an artist and activist. With a large family to look after, she studied art as a mature student and completed an MA in 2009. Her socially engaged work is centred round the small rural community of Ballykinler, Co Down, where she organizes events, from mother and toddler meetings to Bingo for pensioners. With no community centre, she started weekly coffee mornings in the open and later converted a caravan into a much used mobile community centre. Actions which seem like practical community work, are turned into happenings and performances through her politically provocative, practical and poetic artistic vision.
