I am very excited to announce that I have been selected to facilitate a creative engagement project with Sculpture Dublin.
Sculpture Dublin aims to raise awareness of Dublin’s sculptural heritage and has commissioned six new public sculptures across Dublin.
All of the new commissions will benefit from local engagement programmes designed to raise awareness, provoke conversations about sculpture and involve people in discussing how sculpture and public art enhance their neighbourhood. Local engagement will take the form of online surveys, public meetings, artists’ cafes and culture clubs, as well as opportunities to participate in the creation of some of the new commissions and partnership projects with schools, libraries and community organisations.
Sculpture Dublin is working with the city’s cultural institutions to draw attention to sculpture in their collections and temporary exhibition programmes. Through a city-wide programme of talks, tours and workshops, online presentations and publications, and a number of exciting new initiatives, including a Sculpture Day and a Developmental Award, Sculpture Dublin will encourage people to rediscover their city through sculpture – imagining new possibilities for art in the public realm and engaging in shared processes of learning and making.
Sculpture Dublin is a Dublin City Council initiative, developed by Parks, Biodiversity and Landscape Services and the City Arts Office and supported by the Hugh Lane Gallery and Visual Artists Ireland. Dublin City Council Culture Company is supporting the local engagement programme and Axis Ballymun is supporting the administration of the programme.
