Create, in partnership with the Design & Crafts Council of Ireland (DCCoI) and Coolmine Therapeutic Community are pleased to announce the shortlisted artists for the Typecast commission. Interest was sought from artists and craftspeople with experience of working within the context of substance misuse and recovery, to create a new contemporary collaborative artwork utilising clay as a key material.

The shortlisted artists are Denise Lynch, Tom Meskell and Kathleen Moroney.

This commission invited proposals from artists, makers, ceramic artists and artist partnerships. This commission is funded by Léargas through the Grundtvig Programme, which is part of the European Commission’s Lifelong Learning Programme, focusing on education for adults, through formal, non-formal or in informal methods. Typecast was instigated by Portraits of Recovery in partnership with the British Ceramic Biennial as a pilot in 2012. This iteration of the project, Typecast 2014, involves an EU learning collaboration across six countries in order to develop and share methodologies, which support artists working with people in recovery from substance misuse.

Typecast centres on the use of clay as a medium, material and process, offering an opportunity to artists to work collaboratively with a community in recovery to explore ideas that may stem from the groups’ experience.
