right to create
Most likely postponed- Campaign for assisted studio spaces
Organised by Ngaire Jackson and Bronagh Lawson
Ends 23 May 2020
Everyone has the right to create art and to share the result...shaping your cultural identity and having it recognized by others is central to human dignity. (Francois Matarasso)
Belfast lacks assisted studio spaces for adults, who require some help in
their studio practice, perhaps because of a learning difficulty or other issue.
Models like KCAT in Kilkenny
exist around the world that supports adults and so we ask: why not here?
The selected artists have a love of art and have developed their practice so far on various short term projects at changing locations in the city.
This project wants to show their work to a wider public and offer our space for open workshops and new work.
Through talks and presentations by participating as well as interested
artists and organisations, like Moon Base, Belfast,
we want to lobby for assisted studio provisions in the city.
