Time: 2-4 PM
Free entry

In the last 10 years more and more artists have been interested in working with groups within the direct provision system or finding diverse ways to work in meaningful collaboration with asylum seekers and refugees. At their best, these projects can encourage cultural exchange and democratise art-forms. Yet they also demand negotiation with groups over complex issues, to ensure active participation and co-creation and raise thorny questions on representation.

Create will co-host with Cork Midsummer Festival a discussion on collaborative arts projects with asylum seekers and/or migrants, looking at best practice and examining questions around ethics, identity, audience, and responsibility. 

As part of the discussion we will walk to experience The Plurality of Existence in the Infinite Expanse of Space and Time by Clodagh Emoe  with Crocosmia , followed by refreshments at NASC. Guests include: Eszter Nemethi, director of Makeshift Ensemble, and cast members from Utopia Ltd. Clodagh Emoe, visual artist / and members of Crocosmia | The Plurality of Existence in the Infinite Expanse of Space and Time.
