Other People’s Practices (OPP) is an artist residency and research project. Phase 1 took place in Usher’s Island, a National Forensic Mental Health Service community centre in Dublin 8, and supported the production of collaborative, socially engaged projects with recovered and recovering service users of the Central Mental Hospital.
Other People’s Practices: And More Besides is a high level summary of Phase 1 of OPP and its transitioning period to Phase 2. It is researched and written by Dr Sheelagh Broderick. And More Besides… is funded by the artsandhealth.ie documentation bursary award 2019.
The online launch of the publication will be hosted by Caroline Cowley, Public Art Co-ordinator with Fingal County Council. The panel talk will be chaired by Sheelagh Broderick and features OPP’s first resident artists Emma Finucane, Glenn Loughran, and Jonathan Cummins.
This event will also feature the premiere of an exhibition-to-film taking place concurrently in the NCAD Gallery, featuring process work and outputs from Phase 1.
