Create is delighted to announce its success in its collaborative bid with European partner organisations to Creative Europe Culture Sub-Programme 2014-2020 (The Education, Audiovisual and Culture Executive Agency)

The ambitious joint proposal with arts organisations in the UK, Hungary, Spain, Finland and Germany marks a first for an Irish arts organisation , in that it is the largest funding amount from European cultural funds for a project led by an Irish cultural organisation. The proposal to establish a Europe wide partnership to enhance professional opportunities and training for collaborative artists received excellent feedback results from the Creative Europe Culture sub programme Evaluation Committee panel.

The COLLAB Arts Partnership Programme (CAPP) will initiate an ambitious transnational programme to be delivered over a period of 46 months. The different strands of the work programme will cumulatively build skills and competences and offer professional development opportunities for artists through a series of workshops, artist residencies, arts commissions, presentations and a final cultural showcase to be held in 2017. At the heart of the proposal is a cherished goal to improve and open up opportunities for collaborative artists, and enhance their European mobility.

In addition one of the main aims of the COLLAB Art Partnership Programme will be to engage with EU cultural sector, policy makers, academics, cross-sector partners, communities and audiences in the partner countries and beyond in order to facilitate knowledge exchange and cultural policy development. The COLLAB Arts Partnership Programme will support the networking of artists in order to increase their mobility to avail of new opportunities and generate new social, democratic models through expanded understanding of collaborative practices.

Heather Humphreys TD Minister for Arts, Heritage and the Gaeltacht said:

"I’d like to congratulate Create on this achievement which required hard work and effort; it’s a great example of how a collaborative approach can deliver positive results. Create's achievement will benefit the arts participation sector and the Irish arts sector in general."

Orlaith McBride, Director, Arts Council added:

“The Arts Council congratulates Create on its recent award under the EU Creative Europe Programme. This is a huge milestone for Collaborative Arts practice in Ireland and on the International stage, and we look to the delivery of a programme of professional development, residencies, commissions and exchanges.

“Create’s award marks the first time since 2007 that an Irish organisation has been a lead on a large scale cooperation project. An award of this scale represents an enormous achievement and it demonstrates how the work of Create is being recognised in such a highly competitive European funding environment. We believe that this result is indicative of the Irish arts sector's growing engagement with cultural partnerships and opportunities in Europe.”

Patrick Fox, Project Leader for CAPP, Create said:

“We’re absolutely thrilled to be working on this very exciting cross European partnership initiative which will bring Irish artists in the collaborative arena to the attention of many European arts organisations, enhancing Irish artists European mobility and opening up new opportunities for them. We are also delighted by the acknowledgement from the Creative Europe programme of the relevance and significance of the project proposal to the broader EU cultural sector.”

Arts Council’s Artist in the Community Scheme
Bursary Award 2014 : Collaborative Dance

The Arts Council Artist in the Community Scheme Bursary Award 2014: Collaborative Dance aims to support individual professional dance artists working in the area of collaborative dance or with groups of non-dancers . This is the fifth year that the Arts Council has provided a €10,000 bursary award as part of the Artist in the Community Scheme, which is managed by Create. This year for the first time the focus will be artform specific as opposed to focusing on a social or community context.

Purpose and priorities of the award

The purpose of the Bursary Award is to support and nurture professional arts practice and it is specifically aimed at a dance artist/s who have a track record of worked collaboratively with groups to produce dance works/performances.

The Bursary Award of €10,000 provides the selected artist with the time and resources to carry out research, and to reflect on and re-consider the questions associated with creating dance work with non-dancers or those who are not professionally trained.

It is expected that the successful applicant will share the learning arising from the Bursary with the wider dance community and collaborative arts sector.

Create will work in partnership with Dance Ireland in providing information sessions and on the selection process.

Major New Collaborative Commission for 2016 http://www.create-ireland.ie/current-press/major-new-collaborative-commission-for-2016 http://www.create-ireland.ie/current-press/major-new-collaborative-commission-for-2016  

New Commission for 2016:

 

In The Shadow of the State – Jesse Jones and Sarah Browne

 

Create, the national development agency for collaborative arts, and London based arts organisation Artangel are delighted to announce an exciting new commission.

In the Shadow of the State is a new project by artists Sarah Browne and Jesse Jones, marking their first collaboration together. In this work the artists will investigate the role of the Nation State in the control and regulation of the female body, particularly through our contemporary legal and judicial systems. How did the female body come to be the focus of repressed histories and political desires under the regulation of the State?

The artists will work with communities of interest in Ireland and the UK, expanding on existing networks of solidarity between women that often remain invisible or written out of the usual postcolonial narrative. The artists will take the role of shadow researchers, tracing the contours of existing non institutional activist structures of support that enable women to navigate state repression against the female body, particularly related to reproductive rights.  These 'shadows' will be mobile, performative research events staged by the artists and open to an elective community of interest. Together, these ‘shadows’ will work collaboratively to illuminate new possibilities for autonomy and embodied resistance.

The Irish Sea, the channel of water between the islands of Ireland and Great Britain, is a key territory for this project both symbolically and physically. The ambition is to locate the work between the UK and Ireland by casting into the space in-between. This site for the work creates a new possibility for estrangement of national identity b foreyond current legal and political boundaries.

In the Shadow of the State will be realised in public form in both Ireland and the UK in 2016, coinciding with the centenary of the Easter Rising in the Republic of Ireland with additional support from Dublin City Council Arts Office.

Artist Biographies

Sarah Browne

Sarah Browne is an artist based in Ireland. Her research-driven practice investigates the materiality of how we communicate and create meaning through exchange and transaction. This process often centres on the production, distribution and use of particular objects for different situations and locales; objects which tend to be used to lever discussions about economy, value and politics for publication and broadcast elsewhere. Scarcity Radio is a recent project developed with the Ikon Youth Programme in Birmingham, investigating links between metaphors of mining and telecommunications to challenge our understanding of ‘scarcity’, and how it might inform our reading of the 2011 riots in the city - all within the frame of a contemporary art gallery’s education programme.  The results of the project included a film made for free online viewing and an internet radio station.

Recent exhibitions include Hand to Mouth, CCA Derry-Londonderry; Invisible Violence, Museum of Contemporary Art, Belgrade (2014); The Peacock, Grazer Kunstverein, Austria; One Foot in the Real World, Irish Museum of Modern Art, Dublin; Still, We Work, a touring commission for the National Women’s Council of Ireland (2013); How to Use Fool’s Gold, Ikon Gallery, Birmingham and Contemporary Art Gallery, Vancouver (2012); Second Burial at Le Blanc, Project Arts Centre, Dublin (2011); Minimalism and Applied II, Daimler Contemporary, Berlin, and Unto This Last, Raven Row, London (2010). In 2009 she co-represented Ireland at the 53rd Venice Biennale with Gareth Kennedy and their collaborative practice, Kennedy Browne. Forthcoming projects include a solo exhibition at basis, Frankfurt, titled The Invisible Limb, and a residency with the Weltkulturen Museum, Frankfurt in 2015. She currently lectures at the National College of Art and Design, Dublin.

Jesse Jones

Jesse Jones is a Dublin based artist. She studied Sculpture at the National College of Art and Design in Dublin. Her films and videos explore historical gestures of communal culture through processes  of disruption and ambiguity which may hold  resonance  in our current,  social and political landscape. Jones often employs   Brechtian theatre techniques of estrangement to play out narrative s of conflicted or dystopic communities. Drawing from the archival research she has recently developed works with transcripts of encounter therapy groups from the late 60s and early 70s. Using these as scripts to be performed by actors as verbatim theatre, the script becomes a dramatization of the moment of origin rather than  re-enactment. With a strong reference to the history of cinema, Jones use melodrama and performance to heighten the re experiencing of the archival material. Seeing group therapy as script reveals the interpersonal exchanges and textures of gender, sexuality, race and class as the fabric of social construction itself.

Solo  exhibitions The Other North, Artsonje Centre, Seoul (2013) The Other North, The Centre for Contemporary Art Derry~Londonderry (2013).  Sleepwalkers, the Hugh Lane Gallery, Dublin, (2012); The Struggle Against Ourselves, Spike Island, Bristol (2012); The Struggle Against Ourselves, REDCAT, Los Angeles (2011). She also took part in Real DMZ project, on the border of North and South Korea in summer 2013. 2014: Otherwise, Alternativa Festival WYSPA, Gdansk, Poland; Invisible Violence, Museum of Contemporary Art, Belgrade and ARTIUM Basque Country; The Talking Cure, Oakville Galleries, Toronto and IMA Brisbane, Australia. Upcoming exhibitions include: Primal Architecture, Irish Museum of Modern Art , autumn 2014; Seoul Media City Biennnial, SEMA Seoul Museum of Art 2014. Solo Exhibition: The Hugh Lane Gallery, Dublin.

A symposium presented by ANU Productions and Create, the national development agency for collaborative arts as part of Dublin Theatre Festival

Venue: The LAB, Foley Street and other venues
Dates: 7 & 8 October
Time: 10-5pm (provisionally)

To book, visit: https://www.eventbrite.ie/e/now-then-now-witnessing-future-history-tickets-12736817163

“Are there limits to what an artistic experience can achieve?”

This year’s production of Vardo marks the end of ANU Productions’ remarkable Monto Cycle. In its creation and presentation the company has delved into secret histories and societal scandals with precision and dreamlike intensity. ANU have brought the voices of a hidden Ireland to the fore, blurred the lines between interactive, participative and site-specific work, and challenged the accepted conventions of theatre and visual art.

A two-day symposium produced and curated by Lynnette Moran, NOW-THEN-NOW: Witnessing Future History will reflect on what it means to embrace artistic practice that connects with social, environmental and political factors. Taking ANU’s work as inspiration and provocation, it will explore the aesthetic and ethical consequences of immersive work that creates innovative exchanges with audiences. It will also seek to acknowledge the groundswell of artists making collaborative work in Ireland and aim to situate that work within the context of a growing international movement.

There will be a series of installations and interventions related to  this two day event.

More information will be available on Create's website, at dublintheatrefestival.ie and also on Facebook.

Successful Applicant, Typecast Commission Announced http://www.create-ireland.ie/current-opportunities/successful-applicant-typecast-commission-announced http://www.create-ireland.ie/current-opportunities/successful-applicant-typecast-commission-announced The still point of the turning world. Kathleen Moroney (2011).

Create, in partnership with the Design & Crafts Council of Ireland (DCCoI) and Coolmine Therapeutic Community are pleased to announce that Kathleen Moroney has been selected for the Typecast commission.

Interest was sought from artists and craftspeople with experience of working within the context of substance misuse and recovery, to create a new contemporary collaborative artwork utilising clay as a key material.

This commission invited proposals from artists, makers, ceramic artists and artist partnerships. This commission is funded by Léargas through the Grundtvig Programme, which is part of the European Commission’s Lifelong Learning Programme, focusing on education for adults, through formal, non-formal or in informal methods. Typecast was instigated by Portraits of Recovery in partnership with the British Ceramic Biennial as a pilot in 2012. This iteration of the project, Typecast 2014, involves an EU learning collaboration across six countries in order to develop and share methodologies, which support artists working with people in recovery from substance misuse.

Typecast centres on the use of clay as a medium, material and process, offering an opportunity to artists to work collaboratively with a community in recovery to explore ideas that may stem from the groups’ experience.

Kathleen Moroney Biog

Kathleen Moroney was born in New York and educated in the US and Ireland, completing an MA in ceramics at the College of Art and Design, Limerick, Ireland in 1998.

After graduating she returned to live in the US for eight years, where she took part in numerous art residencies, exhibitions and public art projects.

Over the last two years she has focused on site specific installations that reflect on the history and architecture of a space and the gradual passage of time.

Her work has recently been purchased by the National Museum in Dublin for their permanent collection.

Kathleen is living in Co. Clare, Ireland since 2006, and lectures at Dun Laoghaire College of Art (IADT) in Dublin.

Dawn of the Truth Wizards - July 31 http://www.create-ireland.ie/the-prosperity-project/dawn-of-the-truth-wizards-july-31 http://www.create-ireland.ie/the-prosperity-project/dawn-of-the-truth-wizards-july-31 Dawn of the Truth Wizards

Loitering Theatre in association with The Prosperity Project present:

Dawn of the Truth Wizards

Date: 31 July
Location: Long Room Hub, Trinity College Dublin
Time: 6.30

A research discussion on capitalism and its emergent desire to capture the truth of the soul - from emotion capture systems to corporate mindfulness. This event will be preceded by a guided meditation (more details to follow).

With speakers Alexander Galloway (“the Interface Effect”) and Franco Bifo Berardi (“The Soul at Work”).

The Schema

Dublin has pictured itself as centerfold of cognitive capitalism since its micro-soft beginnings. Hard, wired to Google, Twitter and Facebook - now our docklands serve as a secret portal for capital's hidden worldwide flows.
There are rumors of the passing of the Turing test. The network is transforming behind our eyes; and conscious interaction with computers will soon be in our past. Hal-like, the network nodes reach now beyond the boundary of the screen. They scan for our emotions while we look away. Offline has vanished. Nowhere to run to now, no where to hide:

You step into the bank. Your eyebrow moves. Your credit rating drops silently downwards to the void. You look up and yesterday’s memory arrives. You bite your lip in carefree recollection. The light touches your face again. A decision is made. Your overdraft dreams fade to grey. This is what it feels like to be loved by the machines.

Loitering Theatre would like to cultivate mindfulness of capitalism’s new and soon to be ubiquitous emotion capture systems. Dawn of the Truth Wizards is the premier event series explaining how to live wisely in the digital age. Together we shall sit and prepare for the first Wisdom 2.0 Europe event this year in Dublin. You will have the chance to connect with people from the international community interested in the application of mindfulness and wisdom in business and life. Together we will explore how to create lives, companies, and cultures where true connection can flourish. Register early and save yourselves. There might even be machine elves.

Roscommon Arts Office and Roscommon Arts Centre in partnership with Create present

The Worker Symposium

Date: Friday, July 18

Time: 11 AM; registration from 10:30 AM

Venue: Roscommon Arts Centre, Circular Road, Roscommon

Booking: This is a free event but places are limited and booking is essential. Please contact boxoffice@roscommoncoco.ie to book.

The symposium will reflect on contemporary modes of visual art production in rural contexts and the mechanisms and partnerships available to support them. This symposium will provide a platform for reviewing the Art@Work model that has been supported by Roscommon Arts Office for 10 years. The cultural, economical, social and physical landscape of the County has evolved since Art@Work's inception and this symposium will provide the opportunity to explore potential changes to the project. Over the course of the day visual artists will discuss and present their experiences of producing artworks in rural contexts while creators and facilitators of rurally based projects and representatives from International programmes will present case studies.

This one day symposium coincides with the exhibition at Roscommon Arts Centre, also titled The Workers, and features works by Michelle Browne, Gareth Kennedy & Elaine Reynolds, each of whom have participated on the Art@Work programme in the past.

Art@work began in 2001 when Roscommon County Council invited artists to reside at a Roscommon business over a 15 day duration to create works that responded to the environment, materials and staff of their host company. The project was successful on many levels in terms of financially supporting artists who wished to work in collaborative environments, demystified contemporary art practices as many of the artists involved chose to make their work in very public situations and broadened the audience base for engaging with visual art in the County. Over 60 artists have engaged with the project, working with over 30 businesses.

Future Developments at Create http://www.create-ireland.ie/about/future-developments-at-create http://www.create-ireland.ie/about/future-developments-at-create Patrick Fox

Patrick Fox is leaving Create, the national development agency for collaborative arts to take up an exciting new position with a focus on commissioning innovative collaborative arts projects in the UK funded through Arts Council England’s Creative People and Places programme.

Patrick Fox on his new opportunity:

“I’m delighted to take on this new and exciting Directorship, and continue to work to broaden engagement in the arts by supporting innovative, ambitious and dynamic collaborative art commissions. I am of course sad to leave Create, its fantastic team, wonderful partners and of course the exceptional artists that we support. It has been a truly memorable and enriching experience and privilege to work on many exciting projects over the past two and half years and lead Create in its mission as key and critical organisation in the arts landscape both nationally and internationally.

“Nonetheless the opportunity to build a new arts commissioning body with the support of ACE is a challenge and opportunity I could not ignore. I take with me from my time at Create an impression of a vibrant and positive Irish arts sector, making the best of difficult scenarios. I appreciate greatly the Irish arts organisations I have had the good fortune to work with, and the many inspirational artists working in the area of collaborative arts”

Deirdre Figuereido, Chairperson of the Board of Directors at Create, says:

“In his time with Create, Patrick has demonstrated true vision and leadership, expanding the scope of rich partnerships and initiatives that Create is known for, presiding over a variety of really successful key events and extending the range of Create’ s vital supports to artists by taking on management of many more public art commissions.

“He has also presided over a refresh of the Create board, introducing new members with different skillsets. The Board has fully supported the many and varied new directions for Create that he has instigated. As a result of his vision and energy, Create has now diversified its funding base, consolidated its position as the national development agency for the collaborative arts sector, and expanded its remit, working more with European and international partners in a variety of sectors including academia. Thanks to Patrick, Create has clearly consolidated its expertise and leadership in areas such as arts and health and Arts and Cultural Diversity. Whilst we are sad to say goodbye to Patrick, we hope to work with him in new capacities and wish him the very very best in his new venture.”
