Creative Places Tuam is for everyone. Our Thinking on Tuam residency is one way to ensure the voices of Tuam’s artists, activists, agitators, academics, historians, long term residents, and the newest members to the town are central to our work. To ensure we have the right conversations, make the right introductions and head in the right direction in our work together.
The Cooperative Commission offers a unique opportunity to develop a truly innovative collaborative commissioning platform. To create a space for durational placemaking across multiple artforms, Creative Places Tuam dreams of bringing the School of Tuam back to the heart of town.
Creative Places Tuam is committed to building capacity in Tuam and its hinterlands, and so we offer training, professional development and funding opportunities to equip artists and community members to develop their practice and programme.
A space for introduction, reflection and evaluation. We wish to open up an understanding of the potential and importance of talking, listening and ensuring that all voices are heard. Here we will discuss art, collaborative practice, the societal issues and concerns of Tuam, and how community based arts practice can explore these issues.
