Creative Campus an annual site-specific arts programme supporting emerging artists to create work that engages diverse audiences in South Dublin County.
Graduate Artists work with their peers to create artworks for public exhibition under the mentorship of Creative Campus curators.
Artists are brought through a process that considers the following:
· Working collaboratively with peers to realise artwork for public exhibition
· Creating works of art that give great consideration to how audiences may interact with or react to the works of art they realise
· Linking with young artists studying in second level schools through workshops and exhibition tours.
Katherine Atkinson, who works in Professional Development for Create – the national development agency for collaborative arts stated about the programme:
“Mentoring is an exciting and developmental process for both mentee and mentor. It is exhilarating for emerging artists to share artistic ideas and to test them out with professional support - mentors also find this process stimulating within their own arts practice. This unique experience enhances the Big Picture.”
Creative Campus also engages with second level students annually as part of the NCAD Access
Creative Campus takes place through partnership between South Dublin County Council Arts Office,
Tallaght Community Arts and NCAD.
