Seamus Nolan Announced As Recipient of CAPP Commission with Dublin City Gallery The Hugh Lane and Create
Create and Dublin City Gallery The Hugh Lane are delighted to announce that Seamus Nolan has been successful in the Collaborative Arts Partnership Programme (CAPP) Open Call for a socially engaged commission.
This is a very significant commission in the collaborative arts sphere in Ireland. It has resulted from a successful collaboration between Create, the national development agency for collaborative arts and Dublin City Gallery The Hugh Lane, located in Parnell Square and is supported by the Collaborative Arts Partnership Programme (CAPP) a transnational programme co-funded by the Creative Europe Programme of the European Union. The applications, from across the CAPP network of partners, were of particularly high calibre with forty-one artists submitting diverse proposals in cross disciplinary artforms. This exciting commission will run from 2017 to 2018 and sets out to encourage meaningful and in depth engagement with communities of place and of interest as well as the distinct architectural, socio-political and cultural landscape of the North Inner City of Dublin. For this significant contemporary collaborative arts award, the adjudicating panel were looking for a clear demonstration of ambition, framing the commission around innovative engagement with communities in Parnell Square and environs.
Seamus Nolan’s proposal to investigate the idea of archive, deconstruct ideas on ‘heritage’ and engage with both communities of place and of interest, involving Traveller activists and archivists, stood out in terms of concept and imaginative power.
Arts Council's Artist in the Community Scheme
Scéim An Ealaíontóra Sa Phobal
2017 Deadlines: (Round 1) Monday 27 March (Round 2) Monday 26 June
Twice yearly, the Arts Council offers grants to enable artists and communities of place and/or interest to work together on projects. The Artist in the Community Scheme (AIC) is managed by Create.
The AIC scheme is open to artists from any of the following artform disciplines: architecture, circus, street art and spectacle, dance, film, literature (Irish and English language), music, opera, theatre, visual arts and traditional arts. Projects can take place in a diverse range of social and community contexts, for example arts and health, arts in prisons, arts and older people, arts and cultural diversity.
The aim of the AIC scheme is to encourage meaningful collaboration between communities of place and/or interest and artists. It is essential that consultation take place between the artist and the community, so that both parties are involved in deciding on the nature of the project’s realisation. Group ownership of the art should be maintained at every stage. Project realisation may result in a variety of outcomes.
There are two phases to the scheme.
Research & Development, is open to artists who wish to research and develop a project in a community context.
Research & Development/Mentoring is open to artists who wish to develop a community based project and who have identified an artist mentor with whom they want to work during the research and development phase.
Project Realisation, is open to communities of interest or place (or their representative organisations) with an artist.
2017 Deadlines: (Round 1) Monday 27 March 2017; (Round 2) Monday 26 June 2017.
