IMBAS and Solstice Arts Centre host a one-day, online gathering of artists and scholars to explore the relationship between research and artistic practice. Supporting the development of a community of artists and arts practice researchers within and beyond academic institutions, the event is funded under the Irish Research Council New Foundations 2020 scheme. This event will include presentations by Danny McCarthy, Lisa McLoughlin, Wayne Jordan, Kathleen Turner, Brian Fay and Tríona Ní Shíocháin.
Solstice Arts Centre supports an ethos of equal opportunity that is multi-generational, multi-cultural, and multi-art. Its core values include participation, engagement and creativity, resonant with the UN sustainable development goals of wellbeing, quality, equality, sustainability and partnership.
