This talk is aimed at creatives who are looking to develop the way they engage communities in their work. In a series of quick fire presentations, you’ll hear speakers discuss how they’ve incorporated community voices into their artistic process or their organisation’s decision making – and collaborated with their local community to spark new projects and ideas.
This event will be live illustrated by Graphic Designer Angela Kirkwood. After the session, all participants will receive the key take away tips from the talk in the form of an illustrated zine.
Speakers include – Sandy Thomson (Squad Walk Films, Poorboy), Martin O’Neil (The Stove Network), Kathryn Welch (Freelance), Bruce Newlands (Inverclyde Shed) & Joe Donohoe (Fatima Resource Centre, Dublin).
