Connect: Artist Mentoring Project

Common Ground (the arts development agency based in Inchicore) has teamed with Create (the national development agency for collabortive arts) to deliver an action research project, ‘Connect’, on the subject of artist mentoring:

The core of Connect is a mentoring programme that brings experienced artists together with less experienced artists, to guide and support their creative process. A range of events are also taking place which present and discuss ideas about mentoring, through panel discussions, presentation of case studies and workshops. This public action research forum is one of these events. It will be of interest to artists, those working in the arts sector – particularly within the field of participatory arts practice – and those working in other sectors who have an interest in collaborating with artists or are already doing so, e.g. youth workers, community development groups, educators, healthcare professionals, etc.

The next stage of the project is a public action research forum taking place in Galway on 16 June. For more information, click below:
