Following a successful first run, The Rise and Fall of Public Art returns for a second programme, exploring how Northern Ireland has used public art to address our history of conflict.
Led by the Linen Hall Library, this online programme is an informative and light hearted look at how and what goes into commissioning public art.
How will the programme work?
-- Artist and facilitator Lesley Cherry will discuss the good, the bad and the ugly in terms of public art in Northern Ireland
-- Conceptual artist Deirdre Robb will talk about how art is commissioned and present approaches to public art, re-imaging and artist in residence programmes
-- Take part in a creative workshop to learn how to create your own artistic response and submit your ideas
-- You will join an online community hosted in Slack to share ideas and spark conversation
This programme is FREE and open to anyone based in Northern Ireland or border counties. Numbers are limited. Sign up early to avoid disappointment.
The programme will take place at 10.30am on: 11th August, 12th August, 13th August and 14th August.
