Create are proud to announce that we have been awarded the tender to manage the pilot programme of Creative Places Ireland, to take place in Tuam, Co Galway.
Creative Places Ireland is a three-year pilot programme, led by the Arts Council, for communities around the country that have not previously had opportunities to benefit from sustained public arts investment.
This pilot programme programme (2020-2022) with funding of €150,000 per annum, aims to build capacity locally for a sustainable grassroots approach to creativity and arts engagement. It will create new opportunities for local communities to collaborate on meaningful arts experiences, both during the three year programme and afterwards.
This programme will form a key part of Create’s thinking and work over the next three years, and we look forward to working with the people of Tuam to establish a durational, sustainable, community based arts practice in the town. We welcome Carolann Courtney to our team – Carolann will be based in Tuam, managing the programme with support from the rest of the Create team.
Artist in the Community Scheme Bursary Award 2019 recipient: Aisling Byrne
Byrne is a theatre artist with a practice in socially engaged & inclusive theatre making. Throughout the past decade she has predominantly collaborated with artists and arts participants with an intellectual disability under Run of the Mill Theatre, of which she is the founder and Artistic Director. Byrne intends to use this bursary to explore key questions related to her practice as a facilitating theatre artist collaborating with people with an intellectual disability. The bursary will afford her time out from ongoing facilitation of classes & groups, in order to self-examine and ask crucial questions about her role in inclusive theatre making, and the future direction of her practice as a collaborative artist.
