Create in partnership with Limerick School of Art and Design, LIT Limerick is programming a series of Civil Society talks as part of its MA SPACE (Social Practice And the Creative Environment). Create encourages debate on the role of the arts in civil society and curates public talks and lectures designed to further critical thinking, and raise the profile and understanding of collaborative arts as a dynamic contemporary arts practice.

Time:

1:30pm to c.2:30pm

Venue:

Georges Quay campus, FF13. TBC

Lecturers Sean Taylor and Marilyn Lennon, who run the MA Space Programme, are interested in programming talks that challenge and provoke the students. For the 2014 autumn term, the aim of the series of talks is to bring a range of experts to the programme to discuss their expertise and research concerns in fields that have discreet languages, methods and structures. The topics include migrant womens’ rights; science and technology; disability arts; economics and austerity; labour & work practices; Traveller ethnicity.


Speakers will include: Paul Candon (digital activism); Joel Conroy (documentary maker); Dr Brain Hanley (historian); David Joyce (barrister/Traveller Rights); Salome Mbugua (AkidWA); Niamh McCann (actor and trainer);  Padraig Naughton (Arts& Disability Ireland); Shaun O Boyle (Science Gallery); Michael Taft (Unite the Union); and Katherine Atkinson (Project Support and Professional Development manager at Create).

Last year's talk series took place from October 2013 to February 2014.
