Description

In Public, In Particular (IPIP) project uses participatory art methods to create situation specific art. IPIP’s main activities are cooperation workshops for the actors of four chosen streets, all of them with a different character and street actors are the project’s main target groups. The actors could be such as small businesses, youth organisations, office clerks, library or museum staff, shop owners or regular faces of the street who will be asked to plan, execute and evaluate the artworks with artists and other specialists, art teachers and art students. As a result project creates a series of reachable, international and interesting art happenings in particular streets.

Testimonial from Irish Partner

The School of Fine Art at NCAD has incorporated teaching particular capacities linked to the IPIP Project into its curriculim and used its  expert staff to develop and deliver this.  It is held between the Fine Art Departments of Media and Sculpture & Expanded Practice, offering new staff and student relationships. The project has been supported by a number of stakeholders in our area who have different interests and perspectives in relation to Thomas Street, which is the subject of our iinquiry.  The street scape with its multifaceted dimesions , meets NCADs experiential studio based education and offers further and increased porosity between  studio and situation as key frameworks of contemporary practices. The project has offered NCAD dimensions of international partnered working and staff and student exchanges. Our students become increasingly aware of the rich material culture surrounding them which is already heavily inscribed with centuries of presence, absence, thinking and actions.
