Workshop facilitator, Aine Kavanagh, will speak about Community-based Arts in Ireland, referring to the social and political backdrop that sparked a movement, and how this movement has evolved into a viable practice that continues to both grow and struggle in a deep recession. She will contextualize this practice by exploring some key projects that occurred in the infancy of the movement right up to more contemporary projects, including work from her own professional practice, both as a solo artist and a member of This Is Collective. There will also be group activities and interactions, as well as a break to counterbalance all the serious stuff!
To help maintain community safety and contain the spread of COVID-19, Artscape has temporarily closed its community cultural hub facilities to the public and cancelled all Artscape-led in-person programming. We are monitoring public health and government recommendations regarding the reopening of non-essential businesses and public gatherings to guide our decision on a re-opening date.
Meanwhile, we welcome you to attend our free virtual programming through Launchpad Learning Online. See What’s On.
Stay safe and we look forward to seeing you soon!
While numerous professional associations have created their own COVID-19 resource guides, Artscape’s compilation focuses on a collection of financial resources and supports to help creatives across all of our communities navigate this situation.
