An initiative of The Arts Council’s Artist in the Community Scheme, managed by Create, the national development agency for collaborative arts.

The Summer School brought together fourteen artists, thinkers, activists and practitioners with a shared goal to explore the concept of ‘cultural diversity’ and its various applications through the lens of the Artist in the Community Scheme and contemporary socially engaged practice.

Over four days, the attendees partook of workshops, presentations of past and future work, challenges, performances and mentoring, directed by Áine O’Brien, Co-Director of Counterpoints Arts, and co-facilitated by Mary Ann DeVlieg, international consultant in arts, arts mobility and policy and Khaled Barakeh, international artist and cultural activist.
