The exhibition was entitled†Seven leagues laterand was held at the Wexford Arts Centre alongside a slide show displaying examples of childrenís work from each of these projects. In 2007 class groups visited the Seven leagues laterexhibition, which became the starting point for a new project based on materials, themes or images that inspired the children.
