It doesn't matter the genre of art that you work in, visual art, music, performance, film or photography. What matters is your passion for what you do and how you can earn your living from it. So let's start the journey together and turn your passion into your profession
Sustainability in the ArtsWe feel that a sustainable arts sector produces more good news stories, which in turn leads to increased engagement, greater public awareness of their importance and greater public funding. One of the ways we can achieve this is through education of artists, arts professionals and arts organisations.
Leading Intercultural ArtsThe Centre for Creative Practices (CFCP) is the first intercultural Arts Organisation in Ireland and in Europe leading and shaping culturally diverse arts practice. CFCP is dedicated to integrating, promoting and mentoring migrant and local niche artists. We also have access to and engage with a diverse range of minority ethnic and cultural communities.
Innovation in the ArtsAt CFCP we are always looking at innovative ways technology can improve the lives of artists and the arts sector. Our first project is a new an innovative online platform, ArtConnected, which will make collaboration, engagement and discovery a lot easier and enhance artistic practices.
Advocacy & ResearchAt CFCP we provide research backed data to help discover what a sustainable Arts Sector needs. The only way that we can advocate for change is to find out about the needs of artists and make sure that the findings are put into practice.
