CFCP New Voices of Ireland Series 9

For the ninth edition of the New Voices of Ireland Series entitled ARTISTS AND WARS, the Centre for Creative Practices invites proposals from artists of all disciplines who created artworks and artistic projects in response to the recent wars in Ukraine, Syria or other parts of the world. We especially welcome submissions from migrants and culturally diverse artists whose lives and works have been directly affected by these wars.

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.

The Project

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.

I am a French filmmaker and I worked with the Center for Creative Practices through the “New Voices” programs, featuring the work of international artists based in Dublin. The CFCP is a great place where you can discover, in a very intimate atmosphere, great artists and great stories. My overall experience with the staff and the program was very nice, I totally support the CFCP.

Filmmaker, New Voices of Ireland - April 2014

As an emerging artist the new voices series provided me the opportunity to showcase my first solo show and supported me just at the transition from student to practicing artist. The staff at the Centre for Creative Practices were fantastic, so helpful, welcoming and enthusiastic, always on the go setting up the next show, (be it visual or musical) yet despite their dedication to work and tight schedule the staff treat anyone who walk through the door as a good friend and take the time to welcome them wholeheartedly. Having such a mix of audience, like the one at CCP is a really uplifting experience.
