We are delighted to welcome some new faces to the Creative Places Tuam programme, with the creation of our Tuam-based Creative Team! After an open call and some behind the scenes getting to know one another we are beyond thrilled to share the news. Joining us on our Creative Places Journey:
Rachel Varden is an artist living and working in Tuam, and she will be leading out on social media for the programme. Rachel will be sharing the work undertaken by Creative Places Tuam and creating a space for the amazing work of local groups, artists and organisations to be platformed by us too.
Jennifer Cunningham is a visual artist now living in Tuam who will create sketches and artistic interpretations of the town of Tuam. She will capture the moments of connection between the programme and the community.
David McDonagh and James Ryan are locals who will join us to document our work and through video and photo. Both have strong creative practices and are deeply rooted in making work that reflects modern Tuam.
The larger Create and Creative Places Tuam teams look forward to working with, supporting and learning from the Creative Team. We are excited to see how both their arts practice and experiences of Tuam help us tell the story of Creative Places Tuam in the year to come.
