Time:         10.30am – 5pm

Dialogue and Perspectives was a one day event. It was an active research day tracing the journey and processes of collaboration through creative practice, an attempt to articulate the avenues of exploration and the journeys towards artistic outcomes, and an opportunity to retrace the steps towards a collaborative process in a socially engaged context.

With keynote speaker Sean Taylor and panellists Liz Burns, Grace Dyas and Philip Napier, it was a day of collective investigation.

Dialogue and Perspectives afternoon session highlighted the role of mentoring for artists working collaboratively with communities across and between art forms. Mentoring panel included: artists Louise Lowe; Shane O'Reilly, TheatreCLUB;  Amanda Coogan, performance artist; and writers Lia Mills and Melatu Okorie.

The case studies presented form part of both the Artist in the Community Scheme Research and Development with Mentoring Award and the Arts Council Artist in the Community Scheme Bursary Award.

Cultural Diversity and the Connect Mentoring Programme, a partnership from Create and Common Ground, is an Arts Council funded initiative on mentoring and collaborative arts.

This event was part of From Context to Exhibition 2012.
