We are delighted to bring you the next event in our Regional Professional Development Series for Artists in conjunction with Visual Artists Ireland, Limerick City & County Arts Office and Tipperary Arts Office.
Event: How to Create an Artist Led Network
Format: Webinar (Online via zoom)
Date: Thursday 28 April
Following on from the discussion on the benefits and pitfalls of working collaboratively, how can you set up an Artist Led Network from scratch? How can you use you peer network to acquire opportunities? How big should your network be? (and why?) What are the steps involved to ensure that you work with the themes and people you want? How do you manage the many expectations that may arise in coming together as an artist group?
In this panel discussion, we explore the routes taken by and range of experiences of leading practitioners who operate in and work with Artist Led Networks.
The panel is moderated by Kate O’Shea.
Kate is an artist working across printmaking, large-scale installation, performance, and publishing. Her collaborative practice builds spaces of solidarity to explore alternative modes of community and dialogue. In 2018 she founded the publishing house Durty Books with graphic designer Victoria Brunetta which provides a critical space and platform for emerging and prominent voices across art, design, academia and activism who challenge and offer alternatives to hegemonic social and political structures. Durty Books has four upcoming books in 2022-2024, including a major publication on The Artist-Led Archive.
This event is free for Visual Artists based in the Counties of Clare, Limerick and Tipperary..
