Panel discussion as part of Asylum Archive

Create is delighted to announce that Vukasin Nedeljkovic has been awarded the Arts Council Artist in the Community Scheme Bursary Award 2017: Arts and Activism.

Nedeljkovic, a Dublin-based Irish artist, has collaborated with asylum seekers living in direct provision centres for eleven years. Through this bursary, Vukasin intends to explore the processes of collaboration between the artist and activist and the asylum seeking community, and to archive and document Direct Provision as a reference for a period in recent Irish history, noting that we have very little visual information about other Irish carceral sites, including Magdalen laundries, Borstals, Mother and Baby homes and Lunatic Asylums.

As part of the launch of Asylum Archive in Galway, March 2015, Create featured Vukasin as a part of a panel discussion alongside Anthony Haughey, Anne Mulhall, Charlotte McIvor and Megs Morley, chaired by Katrina Goldstone. The discussion centred on the themes evoked by Asylum Archive. Audio of this event can be found on Soundcloud.
