NEW VOICES OF IREAND SERIES 8

MIGRANT ARTISTS

Against the Odds 2

CFCP NEW VOICES OF IRELAND SERIES 8

Against The Odds 2

The 8th edition of the New Voices of Ireland Series entitled MIGRANT ARTISTS – Against the Odds 2

In response to the COVID19 restrictions, MIGRANT ARTISTS – Against the Odds 2 will have the format of a Series of an online event.

The aim of the New Voices of Ireland Series is presenting migrant artists to the wider online community, tell about their artistic practices, new and previous works, plans and about themselves – their lives in Ireland and their artistic and personal roots.

The voices of migrants, the main agents of cultural diversity and collaboration are rarely heard, and in these challenging times, there is a danger that they will be completely marginalised. Hence, the focus of this year’s New Voices Series MIGRANT ARTISTS – Against the Odds 2 on visibility and dialogue.

Through the New Voices of Ireland Series 8, we want to provide a platform for both physical and conceptual communication between migrant and local artists, their communities and their artworks created through observation and artistic exploration of their work.

FORMAT OF THE PROJECT

17 artists have been selected to collaborate online to work in tandems preparing two 15 – 30 min YouTube live or Zoom interviews/conversations about each other’s work. (15 – 30 min per artist)

Participating artists will share their stories, discuss their artistic concepts, methods, techniques or topics, their plans for the future, ideas, inspirations, challenges, comment on each other work, ask questions. If possible, a visit to each other studios would be welcome, but it is not a requirement.

Each conversation will be streamed live as well as recorded and made available on the CFCP YouTube Channel

The series will start in early February 2021 with 8 different tandems taking part over the course of the series.
