Minister for the Arts Heritage and the Gaeltacht, Jimmy Deenihan TD will launch Create’s Networking Day on the 5 December. Minister Deenihan previously launched a Create and Waterford Healing Arts Trust initiative, the web resource, artsandhealth.ie in October 2010.
In addition two new sessions have been added to the full programme for the day, as well as a new speaker, theatremaker Dylan Tighe who will discuss archiving collaborative practice with Eve Olney.
Hilary O’ Shaughnessy (Berlin Love Tour, makedoandplay) and actor/ facilitator Niamh McCann will both take part in Create’s Networking Day. Hilary will conduct a prosocial rulebreaking session. Attendees will be invited to become members of the prosocialrulebreakingclub, an experiment in social art. The prosocialrulebreakingclub proposes to explore ways of innovating in society through rule breaking.
Niamh McCann will give a Presentation Skills workshop. Niamh will host a workshop focusing on skills around ‘Presenting yourself and your work’. The hour long workshop will look at the language we use and how we can focus our awareness around a key set of skills to help us communicate better as artists and collaborate better in a cross disciplinary environment.
NB: For Create members the event is free of charge.
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 us on 5th December to meet other artists in the collaborative arts sector; to hear about the inspiring work of our international guest artists. Turn up and pitch in to discuss, dissect and imagine new collaborations as part of Create’s networking day for collaborative arts.
