Hosted by the CIT Crawford College of Art and Design, MAKE 2019 will be our sixth in a series of annual Symposia that explore issues of making. MAKE 2019 will honour the centenary of the Bauhaus legacy of material sensitivity and tactility with a focus on the physical matter of our making. Join us to meet, listen to, and dialogue with our great lineup of guests. Tickets must be booked online at CIT EVENTS and we always sell out, so book soon!

Fritz Horstman will also open our MAKE 2019 exhibition, TOUCH, at 6:00 just after the Symposium, in the CIT CCAD Gallery at 46 Grand Parade, Cork, This show runs until 30 March 2019. TOUCH is created by selected textile students of CIT Crawford College of Art and Design; Pallas University of Applied Arts; and Vilnius Academy of Arts, Lithuania in an exchange project inspired by the ethos of Anni Albers who championed the tactility and emotional power of cloth.
