Workshops 

Workshop 1 - Fiona Woods: Arts and Rural Context

Fiona Woods is a visual artist whose practice includes curating and writing. As a practitioner her interests include thinking the rural as a site for socio-spatial practices and productions. As a curator she devised and directed Ground Up, a programme of temporary public art in rural contexts (2003 - 2008) and initiated the Ground Up Artists' Collective . She co-devised the project Shifting Ground to explore some of the theoretical impulses behind the practice of art in rural contexts, and VERGE, an occasional art journal focusing on practice beyond the metropolis. Woods is a recipient of the Arts Council of Ireland's 2010 Visual Arts Bursary award and various Travel awards.
