Better Words | A Field Guide to Contemporary Art & Culture

Better Words is a publication for general readers that offers an introduction to contemporary art and culture through the eyes of 8 – 12 year olds. It features new artistic terms, words and word-forms, that describe many aspects of contemporary art today, all of which were invented by children through a workshop process that took place across 5 schools in County Limerick, Ireland, in Spring 2019.
