As part of a series of discussion events linked to the Cumann exhibition, Create and Droichead Arts Centre are delighted to present this talk on art and the collaborative sphere with particular reference to a number of projects funded under the Art Council’s Artist in the Community Scheme which is managed by Create.
Taking part are: Katherine Atkinson (Create) who manages the Scheme and provides advice and support on professional development for artists and artist Marilyn Lennon whose recent project in collaboration with Knocktallon Ramblers is called WayMarkers and was launched on 6 May. The talk will be introduced by artist Michael McLoughlin who worked with local groups over the last year in the making of Cumann: An Audio Map of Drogheda.
As well as providing information on the Arts Council’s Artist in the Community Scheme, Katherine Atkinson and Marilyn Lennon will talk about participation and meaningfully engaging communities in collaborative arts projects. The event will also provide an opportunity for local artists and groups to connect and consider possibilities for working together in the future.
