Rehearsing Hospitality: Accessing Abundance during Institutional Breakdown with artist Dawn Weleski

Deadline for applications: 20 October, 5pm (Irish time)
Web: www.create-ireland.ie/activity/rehearsing-hospitality-accessing-abundance-during-institutional-breakdown-with-artist-dawn-weleski/
Workshop dates & time: 27 October, 1 and 3 November, 2-5pm (Irish time)

Create is delighted to present Rehearsing Hospitality: Accessing Abundance during Institutional Breakdown, a 3-session online workshop with artist Dawn Weleski on 27 October (Thursday), 1 November (Tuesday) and 3 November (Thursday) 2022.

How can artists facilitate nimble project expansion and contraction; activate both entrances and also exits for collaborators and participants; and adapt in sustainability of practice without compromising artistic integrity and project autonomy – all while avoiding institutional capture?

The series will address the politics of transitioning into more collective and durational forms of practice, as well as the complex negotiations required within the engine of collaboration and between external stakeholders and resource-holders as creatives and changemakers navigate the competing demands of their intersecting economies and communities.

Those with financial, access or other requirements are invited to contact Create on vance@create-ireland.ie, or 01 473 6600, to discuss how we can best support you to attend.
