Irish and Northern artists, along with those who commission Irish work in England, come together for a series of engaging sessions, exploring and embodying ‘connectedness’.
What to expect
During the day, we will discuss our creative work; experience artist-led interactions and make connections.
This is a day for professional and creative networking; peer-to-peer conversations and activity that helps to build a better creative community, with the aim of establishing collaborations and generating partnerships for the future. This year, ‘hunger for connection’ will be used as a driver for making work happen.
