“The entire world is becoming an archipelago” - Édouard Glissant (1997:194)

At a time of increasing nationalism and cultural insularity, the need to refresh our understanding of ‘relation’ in the world is more urgent than ever. What is an Island? is a durational artistic research event that explores relational form through the concept of archipelagic thinking and collaborative arts practice. Facilitated by a unique pedagogical programme on a specially commissioned ferry, What is an Island? travels the West Cork archipelago on a single summer day, in search of a deeper connection between islanders, artists and the world.

In response to the question “What is an island?”, three artists have been commissioned to develop work on one of three islands in the archipelago, they are: Sherkin Island (Mona O'Driscoll), Heir Island (Tess Leak) and Long Island (art manoeuvres). Participants will engage with the different art projects on each of the islands alongside the pedagogical programme, titled: Tidalectics. The Tidalectic programme will feature two key presentations on Art and Archipelagic thinking by Dr. Jonathan Pugh and Prof. Mick Wilson. These events will be supported by an on board supper and dialogue with islanders, facilitated by Glenn Loughran.

What is an Island? has been developed by the BAVA: Dublin School of Creative Arts (DIT/GradCAM) in partnership with CREATE: National Development Agency for Collaborative Arts and Uillinn: West Cork Arts Centre, to present a series of seminars, workshops and exhibitions exploring Art & Archipelagic Thinking in the 21st Century.

While each of the artist’s responses to this question will be on display on their respective islands for the entirety of the Skibbereen Arts Festival (27 July to 5 August), on Monday 30 July, they will be linked by this performative, pedagogical, ferry journey.

Please wear shoes/boots and clothes suitable for a field trip - expect long grass, rough ground and mud so please dress accordingly. Heir and Long Islands are accessed via ladder to the pier, there is no wheelchair access and no dogs allowed.

Create is delighted to present Collaboration and Film for the inaugural Bealtaine@Templebar Festival. Award winning filmmaker Eoin Heaney will host this interactive workshop on collaborative practice and filmmaking. As well as hearing about Eoin's work and some of the practice and theory behind collaboration and film, Eoin will be showing some as yet unseen work. This is an opportunity to get ‘behind the scenes’ as it were and meet a filmmaker whose work celebrates the poetry of cinema while reflecting more civic minded topics. See footage of his successful short films which have previously been shown at the Galway Film Fleadh and exhibited at the Irish Arts Centre New York and The National Gallery of Ireland.

Eoin Heaney is a successful Irish filmmaker whose work has been exhibited and screened both internationally and nationally in art spaces and at festivals. In 2016, Eoin was awarded the Arts Council’s ‘Artist in the Community Scheme Bursary Award for Collaborative Film’ and his work has also been supported by the Irish Film Board as well as the Arts Council of Ireland.

Bealtaine@Templebar is a new initiative being organised by Age & Opportunity as part of the annual National Bealtaine Festival.

The European Academy of Participation (EAP) brings together 10 organizations from all over Europe, from higher education and from the arts and culture, who want to make a contribution to a more inclusive Europe in which people live together in mutual respect of their differences. They identified participatory practice in art and culture as a central tool to involve communities in a positive process of constructing a shared cultural space.

In 2018 EAP offers 3 intensive course modules in Amsterdam, Bucharest and Marseille. Each has a distinct profile that takes into account the local environment and cultural urgencies as well as a joint European perspective as developed by the EAP project in the last two years.
