Create, Ireland’s national development agency for collaborative arts, and Dublin City Arts Office are inviting artists who work collaboratively to take part in a survey about their professional development needs. Your response will inform important research being undertaken by Create in partnership with Tate Liverpool (UK), Live Art Development Agency (UK), m-cult (Finland) and Dublin City Arts Office as part of an exploration of a European Learning Network for artists who work collaboratively.

If you are an artist who works collaboratively with communities, please do take the survey.


The information gathered will help Create to:
a) develop a mutual understanding around the range of contemporary collaborative practices
b) gain an understanding of artists’ on-going learning and development needs within the field of collaborative practice
c) work towards an international language which describes the complexity and breadth of those practices

If you want a copy of the results, please include your email address in the space provided. The questionnaire will take no more than 10 minutes to complete.

If you are an Arts + Cultural Organisation based in Europe and would like to discuss partnering on the second phase of the European Learning Network please contact

And don’t forget to join Create at the European Learning Network Symposium….
