*** MASONS HALL & SKIBBEREEN COURTHOUSE confirmed as venues *** Starting on 1st October there will be weekly discussion group to explore the possibilities for a community led arts project in Skibbereen next year. We will be considering contemporary art projects made by communities for communities. Each week we will meet in a different part of Skibbereen and discuss specific art projects.. We will talk about the very practical elements of making a community-led art project. The collaborative arts performance pack developed by Create will be used as a resource as well as the archive of favourite living artists developed during my Uillinn residency. This discussion group is an introduction to contemporary socially engaged arts practice for people who are not artists but who have curious minds and want to have some fun. No art skills necessary. We will meet on Thursdays – 1st/8th/15th October & 5th/12th November from 11-1. Starts in Skibbereen Community and Family Resource Centre but will move venue around the town. Please get in touch if you would like to join the conversation.
