At Home With Irish Arts Center Visual Arts Kids & Family

IAC’s Collective Pop-Up Book Project

A community art challenge!



Irish Arts Center challenges anyone aged two to 92 from anywhere in the world to create a page of a pop-up book for a collective online storytelling project this fall! 

To participate, sign up by Sunday, October 4, and we’ll assign you a line from a story as a prompt to create your pop-up page. Once you’re done, record a short video of yourself opening your page and share it with us by Wednesday, October 14. Details below.

IAC will compile all participants’ entries into a digital pop-up book that we’ll premiere at our annual Irish Halloween event on Sunday, November 1. This community pop-up book video will also live on our website for the remainder of our fall season, and each participant will be given a visual arts exhibition credit for their featured artwork.

How to participate:
Email Jessie Reilly, IAC’s director of education and community programs, at by October 4 for further instructions and to receive your story assignment. 

How to make a pop-up page or book:
Join our free online workshop! Master pop-up artist Maeve Clancy teaches the tricks of the trade on Sunday, September 27.
