We are delighted to announce we have a new partnership as Associate Organisation with field:arts, a cohort of Artists and Creative Producers. A new Creative Production Supports initiative supported by the Arts Council that will cultivate growth, sustainability and ambition across the independent contemporary arts sector in Ireland by prioritising the fundamental relationship between the Artist and Creative Producer.
field:arts is a new pilot initiative co-founded by two of Ireland’s leading Creative Producers, Lynnette Moran and Matt Smyth. Alongside a carefully curated group of contemporary practitioners they set out to build a model of professional and interdisciplinary exchange; to cultivate and embolden growth, sustainability and ambition across the independent contemporary arts sector in Ireland.
Designed to elevate the fundamental relationship between the Artist and the Creative Producer, and to acknowledge both as valued practitioners. field:arts recognises the alchemy of process, ideas, partnership and collaboration required to realise ambitious projects of excellence and of artistic value.
We hold central the care and supports that are needed for better living and working conditions.
This new initiative provides tangible financial, production, training, administrative and mentorship supports for Artists and Creative Producers at critical points in their practice. Enabling Artists and Producers to do what they do with a framework of agile supports within a nexus of skill-sharing, professional development and mentorship.
field:arts Artists and Creative Producers are currently working across Theatre, Dance, Visual Art, Participatory Arts, Digital Strategies, Film and Music.
