Venue: Create, 2 Curved Street, Temple Bar, Dublin 2

Create is delighted to present Collaboration and Film for the inaugural Bealtaine@Templebar Festival. Award winning filmmaker Eoin Heaney will host this interactive workshop on collaborative practice and filmmaking. As well as hearing about Eoin's work and some of the practice and theory behind collaboration and film, Eoin will be showing some as yet unseen work. This is an opportunity to get ‘behind the scenes’ as it were and meet a filmmaker whose work celebrates the poetry of cinema while reflecting more civic minded topics. See footage of his successful short films which have previously been shown at the Galway Film Fleadh and exhibited at the Irish Arts Centre New York and The National Gallery of Ireland.

Eoin Heaney is a successful Irish filmmaker whose work has been exhibited and screened both internationally and nationally in art spaces and at festivals. In 2016, Eoin was awarded the Arts Council’s ‘Artist in the Community Scheme Bursary Award for Collaborative Film’ and his work has also been supported by the Irish Film Board as well as the Arts Council of Ireland.

Bealtaine@Templebar is a new initiative being organised by Age & Opportunity as part of the annual National Bealtaine Festival.

european academy of participation logo

The European Academy of Participation (EAP) brings together 10 organizations from all over Europe, from higher education and from the arts and culture, who want to make a contribution to a more inclusive Europe in which people live together in mutual respect of their differences. They identified participatory practice in art and culture as a central tool to involve communities in a positive process of constructing a shared cultural space.

In 2018 EAP offers 3 intensive course modules in Amsterdam, Bucharest and Marseille. Each has a distinct profile that takes into account the local environment and cultural urgencies as well as a joint European perspective as developed by the EAP project in the last two years.
