2018 B.R.E.A.D! Festival honors even more diversity

October 01, 2018

Dublin Life Magazine, Collen D'Angelo

This year, Frambes will switch gears a bit with a new experience that she calls “the opportunity of a lifetime.” A group of monks from the Drepung Loseling Monastery in India will be visiting Dublin to create a beautiful and meaningful five-by-five-foot sand mandala over the course of several days. Mandala is a Sanskrit word meaning sacred cosmogram, and this particular mandala is called Avalokiteśvara, or Buddha of compassion, which is significant as the festival aims to bring cultures together. 

As part of the B.R.E.A.D! Festival, the monks will train Frambes to use their sand tools so she, in turn, can lead the public in creating its own separate public sand art piece.

“It will be incredible to learn from the originators of this ancient art and share the knowledge with festival attendees,” says Frambes.

“The whole experience is different because you are interacting with the public while you are creating… people respond to it and it’s a conversation. I like to interact with the crowd and I like to talk especially to the kids… the whole process is enjoyable and cathartic,” Frambes said.  Click below for the full article.

Frambes worked on a large headshot-type portrait of the rock singer Debbie Harry, formerly the lead singer of Blondie.
