Artist Simon McKeown, Cork Ignite workshops, June 2014

Create and the National Sculpture Factory Cork are working in partnership on the Cork Ignite commission by internationally renowned artist Simon McKeown. Originally Simon was scheduled to realise an ambitious new artwork as part of Culture Night Cork 2014. Mckeown has already been working with members of the disability community in Cork, through Suisha Inclusive Arts at COPE Foundation and SoundOut in the creation of the work. Simon was commissioned as part of the Ignite programme, Ireland’s most ambitious showcasing of talent from people with disabilities which seeks to increase the profile of work by disabled artists in Cork, Galway and Mayo. Due to the artist’s recent ill-health, the commission will now go ahead in 2015.

Ignite is managed by a unique partnership involving the Arts Council, Arts & Disability Ireland (ADI), Cork City Council, Galway City and County Councils, and Mayo County Council.
