AIC Scheme Bursary Award 2017: Arts and Activism
Create is delighted to announce that Vukasin Nedeljkovic has been awarded the Arts Council Artist in the Community Scheme Bursary Award 2017: Arts and Activism.
Nedeljkovic, a Dublin-based Irish artist, has collaborated with asylum seekers living in direct provision centres for eleven years. Through this bursary, Vukasin intends to explore the processes of collaboration between the artist and activist and the asylum seeking community, and to archive and document Direct Provision as a reference for a period in recent Irish history, noting that we have very little visual information about other Irish carceral sites, including Magdalen laundries, Borstals, Mother and Baby homes and Lunatic Asylums.
