We are committed to professionally supporting Migrant and Culturally Diverse Artists, effectively showcasing and further developing their talents and enabling them to access resources and the local arts scene. We help migrant and culturally diverse artists to fulfil their creative potential for their own and societal benefit.

We welcome proposals to showcase visual arts, performance, music, dance, film/video, literature or other forms that will fit well with the multidisciplinary concept of the Series.

Artists and Wars
The New Voices of Ireland Series aims to present works and practices by migrant and culturally artists to their local peers and broader audiences in Ireland and to invite migrant artists to take part in the current social and political debates. Reflecting upon the imperialist brutality of the Russian invasion of Ukraine, the dramatic effects of the Syrian war, and the situation in Palestine, to name some of the ongoing conflicts, the New Voices of Ireland Series of 2022 focuses on the gloom reality that peace, our democratic values, the right to enjoy our lives and fruits of our work, all taken for granted in the Western part of the world and the Global North, are unique achievements that if not protected, can disappear in no time when exposed to destructive, totalitarian and extremists’ forces.
Up to 10 projects/artists will be selected to join the New Voices 2022 group show. The programme will include a multidisciplinary showcase of selected works and projects, artists’ talks and participatory events for the audiences, an introductory and networking workshop for participating artists, and interviews with the artists for podcasts and online engagement.
TRAINING & MENTORING
CFCP has enabled a multitude of inter-cultural artistic collaborations in Ireland, between artists from home and abroad. We have helped migrant and culturally diverse artists grow their creative practice, immerse themselves in the Irish artistic landscape and make connections that otherwise might have been impossible. CFCP has also created a platform for audiences to discover and enjoy culturally diverse events, with a rich cross-pollination of ideas and themes that reflects the diversity of the artists and their collaborative work.
