As per our Strategy 2022 – 2026, creating a compelling programme of work that supports artists and nurtures audiences is at the heart of who we are and what we do. It is why we exist. We want to create an ecology which nurtures art and artists, and which makes the production and presentation of high-quality work available.
MAKERS MAKING MORE
A new initiative devised to support artists through practical resources; Q&A’s, workshops and collaborative community events, inspired by the Suggestion Box from our first Artist’s Drop In earlier this year. The series of workshops are devised and coordinated by Actor/ Singer Juliette Crosbie and Droichead Arts Centre Artistic Director Collette Farrell.The MMM initiative itself places an established artist (and their eyes and ears) at the core of producing events, workshops, Q&A’s for the community from which they come, with the intent of identifying artist’s unique needs and struggles, and devising creative solutions to enhance resources and empower artists.
