New Practice European Artists Network...

As part of Ireland’s Presidency of the EU in 2013, is working in partnership with Sligo Arts Service and The Model, Sligo, to deliver a unique pilot project, involving Sligo-based artists who work with children and young people, and their European counterparts in Estonia and Hungary.

Funded by through the Arts Council’s EU Local Partnership Scheme, this project aims to develop a network of artists working with children and young people in Sligo, Tallinn and Budapest.

Through this network, we will share and celebrate arts practice across Ireland, Estonia and Hungary and will research the needs of artists in terms of European connectivity and online supports. The project will begin with a residential weekend for artists in Sligo and over the course of six months, a series of online events and local hub meetings will take place with artists connecting from across the three participating countries.

The project will culminate in regional showcase events in each country in June 2013, engaging the wider community and network.

More information will be posted on our project blog, as the programme develops.
