Cork City North West Quarter Regeneration

Introduction

Cork City North West Quarter Regeneration under their Capital Regeneration Programme has provided funding through the Percent for Art Scheme to undertake the management and realisation of a significant art commission for the area.

The Commission seeks to support new and exciting opportunities for artists to engage with communities through dynamic collaborative arts projects and responses led by artists.

The National Sculpture Factory will manage an open call for proposals to artists for the commission, with support from Create the national development agency for collaborative arts Ireland and a panel of independent advisors.

Artforms and Context

It is important that the project connect with the Area under the Regeneration Focus

THIS PROCESS SEEKS INTEREST ONLY FROM ARTISTS OR ARTIST LEAD COLLECTIVES WHO WILL ENGAGE IN RESEARCH WITH COMMUNITIES AND WHOSE WORK IS COLLABORATIVE IN NATURE.

Eventual work can include any artform and be achieved through once off interventions, residencies, collaborative projects, interdisciplinary responses, and / or time based work. There is also scope for collaboration between disciplines (e.g. architect and visual artist, theatre maker and designers) and for collective responses or interdisciplinary approaches and practices.

There is a focus on new work as a central aspect of the commission and the focus is on collaborative work or work that may interact with and or activate community.

Artists will be supported at Stage 2 with introductions to communities and other stakeholders.
The commissioners intend to create a supportive enabling environment and the selected project/s may be supported to base themselves within the community for periods (work space/living space)

The Key Themes, which emerged from consultation through the regeneration process, are:

Home
Perceptions
Place and People
Belonging
Community and Social Change
Orientation
Future
Resilience
Technology
