Artists Showcase & panel discussion

Mayo County Council is delighted to announce the launch event for Navigating a Future at Ballina Art Centre at 6pm on Friday 20th May 2022.

On the evening there will be a showcase of the artists’ work and a discussion with the artists facilitated by Sarah Searson, Commissioned Interviewer and Editor. A digital publication documenting the project, including extracts from artist interviews, will be available online after the launch on www.mayo.ie/arts/public-art. An exhibition showcasing the project, will run upstairs at Ballina Art Centre, from May 20th until 25th June 2022.

Key to the thinking behind this commission was the desire to give artists living in the county an opportunity to respond to the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic and to consider our lives going forward. Artists are well placed to respond to unusual times of social change; through their practice they explore, question and reflect, giving rise to unique and unusual insights.

The commissioned artists were Breda Burns, visual artist; Catherine Donnelly, dance artist; Breda Mayock, musician and visual artist and Áine O’Hara, visual artist and theatre maker. For more information on each artists project for this commission go to project update here. 

This commission is part of Mayo County Council’s Public Art Programme, funded by the Department of Housing, Local Government and Heritage under the Per Cent for Art Scheme.
