If you missed our Creative Europe Showcase in June, now you can watch it on YouTube (see below). Find out find out more about Creative Europe funding, finding European partners and how co-operation projects work as well as the benefits for Irish partners, artists and audiences.
In this video, we showcase some of the most exciting and innovative Co-operation Projects which have been successful in the recent Culture Sub-Culture Programme 2014-2019. Some major European collaborative projects have had Irish organisations at the heart of them and have been successful in reaching new audiences both in Ireland and across Europe. VIBE and EUCIDA are two of these projects.
Hearing from project participants will lead to a greater understanding of what Europe is hoping to achieve with its funding and explore the potential benefits to organisations, artists, audiences, and the wider sector both in Ireland and across Europe.
The Creative Europe Culture Desk - what do we do?
Katie and Aoife talk about Creative Europe Culture Desk, the relationship between Ireland and Creative Europe, and why this stream of funding available for the arts sector is important to the sustainability of our artists and organisations working at home and internationally. They present current and future funding opportunities for artists and organisations and give tips for developing partnerships and preparing proposals for the next Creative Europe Programme (2021 - 2027) which is due to be launched in early 2021.
Learning from Irish Projects
Voyage Inside a Blind Experience (VIBE) is a touring exhibition that can be enjoyed by a visually impaired public. It features works by the renowned artists Anni and Josef Albers as well as tactile models, darkroom installations, interactive displays, and educational programme. The Irish partner in VIBE is the Glucksman Gallery, University College Cork. The Glucksman's Senior Curator, Chris Clarke, talks us through how VIBE was developed for audiences and how Irish artists were involved.
EUCIDA European Connections in Digital Arts is an interactive and innovative community of digital artists and cultural workers working transnationally across Europe. The Irish partner in the project was Rua Red Arts Centre, Tallaght, Dublin. Maoliosa Boyle, Director, and Joyce Dunne, Operations Manager, talk about the EUCIDA project and elaborate on the connections they made across Europe.
