Strand 4: Skills in Community based practice (Organised by Create)

Create will be leading an exciting learning opportunity for artists interested in collaborative working models. The principle aim of the Create Salons will be to explore the nuances and complexities of different aspects of collaborative arts practice and the processes involved. We will examine questions of authorship and agency as well as the variations and overlaps that can take place within participatory practices engaged with social issues and exchange.
The day will be broken down into three interactive sessions led by a guest facilitator and expert in each field. We will present case studies, create opportunities for interrogation and work as a collective to gain a fuller understanding of the various modes of collaborations; their characteristics and the skills required of artists to negotiate each.

1. Collaborative arts – Communities as source material – Inspiration and process in source material (Lynnette Moran) 
This workshop session will look at the core values that run through this approach with emphasis on openness and negotiation. How do you reflect source material and the contribution of those who inspire the work but have little or no part in its creation?

2. Collaborative arts - Communities as co-creators (Katherine Atkinson)
This workshop looks at equitable relations and equality in co creation of new work 

3. Collaborative arts – Communities as activators (Ailbhe Murphy)
This workshop looks at work that depends on a level of audience interaction to be brought to life. Expectation encouraging interactivity, invisible barriers, accessibility.

Each workshop in Strand 4 will be approximately 90 mins long.
