Are you an artist who makes art outside of traditional spaces; a theatre-maker who works with non-professional or community casts; a dancer who choreographs with older people? An artist who works collaboratively to create great art? If so, join Create on 5 December for a National Networking event to meet other artists in the collaborative arts sector; to hear about the inspiring work of our guest artists including Claire Feeley (Situations) and Dr. Susanne Bosch (Artist /Curator) discussing curator-artist relationships.  There will be a session on risk and experimentation featuring Rachel Anderson from Artangel and we will discuss archiving collaborative practice with Eve Olney.

Over the course of the day attendees will have the opportunity to connect with their peers, interact with commissioners, receive practical information and be inspired by dynamic and vibrant collaborative arts projects created here and elsewhere.

The day has been curated by the artist Michelle Browne in collaboration with the team at Create and focuses on both practical and conceptual supports for artists working collaboratively.  There will be information stalls hosted by JLT Insurance, HSF Health Plan and other providers, as well as inputs on Garda Vetting, Press and Communications, European Cultural Contact Point and Financial Management.  More speakers and ancillary events to be announced soon…..
