Artist in the Community Scheme 10 Year Gathering - November 27

In partnership with the Irish Museum of Modern Art

Create welcomes you to AIC10, which marks a decade of artwork funded under the Arts Council’s Artist in the Community Scheme. We are delighted to celebrate with artists and communities the creation of innovative and inspiring collaborative arts projects throughout the last ten years.

Date: 27 November
Time: 10 am - 4.30 pm 
Venue: The Chapel, Irish Museum of Modern Art, Dublin

Create has been successfully managing the Artist in the Community Scheme on behalf of the Arts Council for the last ten years. In that time, hundreds of projects have come to fruition across the country, involving countless community members and groups and many of Ireland’s leading artists. Reaching a ten year milestone provides us with the opportunity to reflect and take stock of the dynamic body of work that has been produced from this funding opportunity; gives us a chance to celebrate the achievements of the artists and communities involved, as well as looking forward to what the next decade will bring in the area of collaborative arts.

TICKETS ARE UNFORTUNATELY SOLD OUT. We are compiling a waiting list in the event of cancelled tickets. Please email info@create-ireland.ie to join the waiting list.

The day will end with a Performance at 5.30: Good Works with artist John Byrne

‘Good Works’ is a collaborative performance featuring singers from The Carlow Choral Society, The Dublin Bach Singers and their director Blanaid Murphy. This unique ‘Art Service’ features new hymns written and composed by Byrne, scored by Elaine Agnew. The ceremony will feature soloists Cian Brady and Maria Hughes with guest readers, Catriona Crowe, Declan McGonagle, Brian Keenan and Alberto Duman. This work is supported by Cavan Arts and The International Fund for Ireland.
