The National College of Art and Design (NCAD) and Create invite you to Collaborative Learning in the Neighbourhood: Reflections on NCAD’s Dublin 8 Neighbourhood Residency.
Since its inception in 2020, NCAD’s Dublin 8 Neighbourhood Residency programme offers Undergraduate Fine Art students an in-depth learning experience of the richness of community-based collaborative arts practice. Immersed in the local neighbourhood of the college and hosted by a network of community organisations including Rialto Youth Project, The Bridge Project and Robert Emmet CDP, as well as Create, the residency supports students to develop their ideas and practices in context and in partnership with others.
This event brings together NCAD students and staff, along with local community workers, youth workers, artists and educators to critically reflect upon shared experiences and consider the challenges and potential of collaborative arts practice in the neighbourhood.
This event will feature inputs from NCAD students Patsy Tyrell, Aaron Sunderland Carey and Steph Saidha; Martin Drury, Independent Practitioner and Adviser; Dannielle Mc Kenna, Project Manager of Rialto Youth Project; Sheena Barrett, Curator of the LAB Gallery and Assistant Arts Officer Dublin City Council; Austin Campbell, Executive Director of Robert Emmet Community Development Project; Fiona Whelan, Coordinator of D8 Neighbourhood Residency, NCAD; and Ailbhe Murphy, Director of Create.
