Making Community, Creating Place: How communities are supported to creatively make place

Create, the national development agency for collaborative arts together with Creative Places Tuam invite you to join us in an in-depth session on making communities and creating place, as part of the Arts Council and Local Government Ireland’s Places Matter conference. Beginning with an artists’ reflection from the Creative Places pilot in Tuam, the Programme Coordinator and members of the Tuam community will discuss working together over the shifting and uncertain terrain of lockdown.

Making Community, Creating Place: then invites delegates to connect with the expertise of the varied communities from The Creative Places National Network and collaborative practitioners in a collective exploration of the conceptual and practice-based frameworks for delivering honest, meaningful and engaged work in estates, villages, towns and hinterlands all over Ireland.

This session includes Creative Places Tuam and Network Services Coordinator and panel chair, Carolann Courtney, Tuam-based artists Joanna McGlynn, filmmaker David McDonagh, Tuam resident and community advocate Patricia King Callaghan with Dr Grainne Coughlan.
