Date: 28 May, 2013
Time: 6.30 pm
Venue: The LAB, Foley Street, Dublin 1. No booking required.

Ahead of the Create/DCC European Learning Symposium on the 29th May, artist Joshua Sofaer will talk about his arts practice at The LAB.

Joshua Sofaer is an artist who is centrally concerned with modes of collaboration and participation. Often with an irreverent use of humour, he plays with established forms of production, appropriating and reconfiguring the chat show, competition, lecture, or museum display. He acts as curator, producer or director of a broad range of projects, including large-scale events, intimate performances, and publications.

Sofaer was a winner of the first Bank of America CREATE Art Award and was the first Artist Fellow on the 2010/11 Clore Leadership Programme.

ELN Partners: Create, Dublin City Arts Office (Ireland), TATE Liverpool (UK), LADA (Live Art Development Agency) (UK) and M-Cult (Finland)

Create has initiated a European Learning Network (ELN) for 2013, in partnership with Dublin City Arts Office, Tate Liverpool, Live Art Development Agency and M-Cult funded by the EU Presidency Local Partnership funds.

Through the ELN partnership we will explore the evolving professional development needs of artists who locate themselves within a collaborative practice  to create a framework to respond to those needs on a European level.

The European Learning Network (ELN)will explore key learning models developed by the partner organisations and share these with professional artists in the collaborative arts sphere, with a view to providing alternative optics and fresh ways of making work. We hope to provoke, challenge and encourage the collaborative art and socially engaged sector in Ireland to consider their practice in relation to an international ecology of contemporary collaborative practice and to provide greater supports for the on-going professional development of artists who locate themselves within contemporary collaborative arts practice. The funding allocated to phase one of this programme is designed to seed longer term relationships and more significant European partnerships.
