Critical Friends in Residence in Create Library and Archive
Create is delighted to announce a hybrid residency with Critical Friends as part of our Library and Archive project.
Critical Friends is a network of professional practitioners with socially engaged, participatory and collaborative practices who have graduated at a Masters level. Initiated by a group of postgraduates from the MA in Socially Engaged Art and Further Education in NCAD, with the core group expanding to include postgraduate support from MA Social Practice and Creative Environment in Limerick, the group are interested in developing emerging practices through peer-to-peer support, dialogue and collaboration. Current steering group members include Alisha Doody, Sarah Fitzgibbon, Jackie McGrath, Thomas Noone and Andrew O’Toole.
They will participate in a hybrid residency with Create from September 2022 to January/ February 2023. The residency is intended to be generative for CF, who will enter into a dialogue/ exchange with Create about the nature of emerging practice in the field. This Residency is not just about access to material but about a place to consider the politics and efficacies of such documentation. Additionally, the CF group will consider what traces of the residency can be documented and developed into archival materials.
