Create and Counterpoints Arts are pleased to announce the 2019 Summer School on Cultural Diversity and Collaborative Practice. An initiative of The Arts Council’s Artist in the Community Scheme, managed by Create, the national development agency for collaborative arts. The Artist in the Community Scheme (AIC) is funded by the Arts Council and managed by Create. The
scheme has a long history in the development of collaborative arts in Ireland. Established in 2002 with the aim to encourage and support meaningful collaboration between artists and communities of place and/or interest, the AIC scheme supports dynamic collaborations across art forms and context areas across the country. Examples include film making with divers off Malin head, Co.Donegal; dance in Cape Clear Island, Co. Cork; sound art with Beekeepers in Limerick to visual arts with Migrant Women’s Group in Dublin. Cultural Diversity and the Arts has always been a priority area for the Arts Council and the AIC
Scheme has supported many project initiatives in this area. For a second year, Create and Counterpoints Arts are delighted to offer a Summer School on Cultural Diversity and Collaborative
Practice for up to 15 artists.
