New Voices of Ireland Series 5

New Voices of Ireland Series 5

For 2017 the 5th edition of the New Voices of Ireland Series, CFCP is inviting submissions from migrant, experimental and emerging artists of all disciplines. Our selected theme for 2017 New Voices of Ireland is: “MIGRATION – FROM BURDENS TO OPPORTUNITIES”.
The theme is closely related to the topic of MIGRATIONS as it is to be expected that “immigration and the integration will remain the hottest political issues in Europe in 2016-2017.”
NEW VOICES OF IRELAND SERIES 2017 wants to challenge nationalist and xenophobic propaganda through exploring and exposing irrationalities and limitations of our fears. As an antidote to them we want to concentrate on opportunities coming with such a challenge like migration.

Giving Creatives & Artists the Opportunity to Build Sustainable Careers

Giving Creatives & Artists the Opportunity to Build Sustainable Careers

What I AM talking about here is the entrepreneurial skills creatives need to provide fulfilling sustainable careers, as to be honest, the lack of any basic entrepreneurial education taught in art colleges and schools at present is appalling.

What are Value Propositions? How can knowing mine help me?

What are Value Propositions? How can knowing mine help me?

The value proposition is central to the overall business model and should form the anchor for all decision-making, operations, and customer engagement. It is more than a set of words; more than a set of marketing messages; it is the framework for how the business aligns its activities and output with its target audience’s needs, to deliver a compelling experience that can ultimately be monetized through an exchange of value.

The Need to Develop a Creative Business Model

The Need to Develop a Creative Business Model

The core issue at stake is to identify and design adequate tools enabling students and graduates of creative disciplines to successfully develop their business ideas.

One of the critical tools missing at present in creative education is a business planning model that reflects the specifics of the creative sector. Lets explore this more.

Samuel Robinson – Divisions – Five Minutes on The Street

Five Minutes on The Street

This project is a five minute short film from the perspective of a homeless person sitting on the cold streets of Dublin. This is done via an actor and will records how the homeless on the streets of Dublin are ignored by many of the people who walk past them on the street.

Homeless is an issue that every city faces and Dublin is no exception to this.The purpose of Five Minutes on The Street is to highlight the problem of homelessness that Dublin face’s.
As we walk to and from where we need to go throughout our day, we ignore the people who are forced to live on the streets. The homeless on the streets of Dublin are glossed over like a piece of the scenery.

There is no helping people who face these issues if they are not even acknowledged as even being there. By ignoring the issue itw will not get any better, it will only get worse.

The goal of Five Minutes on The Streets is to hopefully snap people back into seeing the issue of homelessness. By showing them how the homeless are ignored, the hope is that they will be more aware and empathetic to the homeless people that they pass every day. By reawakening this awareness, more people we be in a better place to help those facing the struggle of homelessness and start to solve the issue of homelessness.
