Andi is an experienced artist and maker with an extensive background in participatory arts. He is a recent graduate of MA Social Practice and the Creative Environment from Limerick School of Arts and Design.
The nature of his visual arts practice has enabled him to interact and collaborate with many Arts community and education bodies, managing the minutia of projects, often temporarily becoming part of organizations and multi-tasking in a range of different roles. One of his key strengths is the ability to strategize, plan, develop and visualize in a creative way and to follow though overseeing and implementing the agreed plan.
Andi can start any project from the ground up. His varied experiences have enabled me to grasp how to form new collaborations and develop partnerships with a wide range of individuals, group, agencies, and funding bodies.
Andi has a strong and distinct leadership style and can galvanize groups and focus outcomes which follow good governance/ best practice. Much can also be achieved by fostering a spirit of encouragement, collaboration, and mutual support often using humor as an effective tool to lubricate the components.
As a volunteer himself, Andi values the contribution volunteers make to a community and treats all volunteers – as a valuable human resource.
Andi has been actively involved and very successful in many different funding applications with many years planning and budgeting for a variety of small, medium, and large-scale projects.
