Curator’s Areas of Interest:

I’m interested in socially engaged arts practice and how artists and communities by working together can explore and address urgent current social, political and cultural issues.
I’m also interested in arts practice that engages with the issues of the Anthropocene encompassing questions about the relationship between nature and society, society, science and technology and the role of the arts in negotiating these debates.
I’m interested in multi-disciplinary and cross-artform practice.


Ann Davoren is taking part in Speed Curating on Tuesday 5th October
