For Migrant, Experimental & Emerging Artists

The Centre for Creative Practices, CFCP, founded in September 2009, is DEDICATED to GIVING VISIBILITY TO MIGRANT, EXPERIMENTAL & EMERGING ARTISTS IN IRELAND & DEVELOPING SUSTAINABILITY in the CULTURAL & CREATIVE SECTOR. 

What we are passionate about

Sustainability in the Cultural & Creative Sector

We feel that a sustainable cultural and creative 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 creatives, professionals and organisations.

Innovation in the Cultural & Creative Sector

At CFCP we are always looking at innovative ways technology can improve the lives of Creatives and the Cultural & Creative sector. Our first project is a new an innovative online platform, ArtConnected, which will make collaboration, engagement and discovery a lot easier and enhance creative practices.

Leading Intercultural Creative Practices

The Centre for Creative Practices (CFCP) is the first intercultural Creative 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 creatives. We also have access to and engage with a diverse range of minority ethnic and cultural communities.

Advocacy & Research

At CFCP we provide research backed data to help discover what a sustainable Cultural and Creative Sector needs.  The only way that we can advocate for change is to find out about the needs of all working in the CCI sector and make sure that the findings are put into practice.

How we do it

Implimentation

We work with you every step of the way to implement your vision for your organisation. If you are looking to work on specific elements of your business or need to help in designing your business strategy, marketing plan, customer experience or just need that helping hand, then we are here to work on your business with you.

Mentoring

Would you like to talk to someone? Then schedule a mentoring session.  If you are serious about moving your creative career to the next level, then talk to us.

Training Programme

Looking for help, looking to work with a group or want to get insights from other creatives then the series of workshops and courses that we run in CFCP are just for you.

Grant Writing and Review

Do you need help with your grant applications? Do you want someone to read, evaluate and appraise your application but you don’t know where to start? We can help you.

This video was produced for RTÉ and was broadcast as part of their series highlighting organisations that received funding from the state, in our case the Arts Council of Ireland. We think it gives a clear idea of the work we do, and why it is important.
