Seamus Nolan: CAPP Commission 2017 http://www.hughlane.ie/outreach-projects/past/1699-seamusnolan http://www.hughlane.ie/outreach-projects/past/1699-seamusnolan Artist Seamus Nolan is the recipient of the prestigious CAPP commission with Dublin City Gallery The Hugh Lane and Create.

We are delighted to announce that Seamus Nolan has been successful in the Collaborative Arts Partnership Programme (CAPP) Open Call for a socially engaged commission. This is a very significant commission in the collaborative arts sphere in Ireland. It has resulted from a successful collaboration between Create, the national development agency for collaborative arts and Dublin City Gallery The Hugh Lane, located in Parnell Square and is supported by the Collaborative Arts Partnership Programme (CAPP) a transnational programme co-funded by the Creative Europe Programme of the European Union. The applications, from across the CAPP network of partners, were of particularly high calibre with forty-one artists submitting diverse proposals in cross disciplinary artforms. This exciting commission will run from 2017 to 2018 and sets out to encourage meaningful and in depth engagement with communities of place and of interest as well as the distinct architectural, socio-political and cultural landscape of the North Inner City of Dublin.  Seamus Nolan’s proposal to investigate the idea of archive, deconstruct ideas on ‘heritage’ and engage with both communities of place and of interest, involving Traveller activists and archivists, stood out in terms of concept and imaginative power.

Barbara Dawson, Director Dublin City Gallery The Hugh Lane “We are delighted to work with Create and Seamus Nolan on this great commission. One of Ireland’s foremost artists working in collaborative arts practice, Nolan has presented a powerful and thoughtful proposal focused on the Traveller community. Working with the community, Paveé Point, archives and archivists, the artist will go beyond any single reading of identity and heritage in a contemporary re thinking of established histories, memories and communities”

Ailbhe Murphy, Director of Create “We are delighted that Seamus Nolan, one of Ireland’s leading collaborative arts practitioners, has proposed this very timely and relevant socially engaged project. With a focus on archive, identity and history in relation to the Irish Traveller community, Nolan will work with a number of collaborators to re shape and re work ideas about what ‘heritage’ and memory can be. We are really looking forward to working in partnership with the Hugh Lane on this exciting commission.”

Seamus Nolan, artist “I am really pleased to have the opportunity through this commission to examine basic notions of representation and community building in relation to Traveller past and heritage. The commission will support the coming together of cultural practitioners, activists and archivists in an exploration of contested histories.”

Martin Collins, Pavee Point added: “With the recognition of Traveller ethnicity it is important to explore how Traveller culture and identity can be integrated in an inclusive way into all aspects of Irish life. Pavee Point welcomes this opportunity to continue to develop innovative and imaginative approaches and looks forward to working with artist Seamus Nolan.”

Dublin's Culture Collects http://www.hughlane.ie/outreach-projects/past/1675-dublinscultureconnects http://www.hughlane.ie/outreach-projects/past/1675-dublinscultureconnects Dublin's Culture Connects: The National Neighbourhood

The National Neighbourhood spans the Dublin City Council region, and for the first time brings together the Public Libraries, the area offices, the City Arts Office and Dublin City Gallery The Hugh Lane, in partnership with National Cultural Institutions (The Abbey Theatre, The National Museum of Ireland, The National Library of Ireland, The National Gallery of Ireland, The National Concert Hall, The Chester Beatty Library, The National Archives and The Irish Museum of Modern Art).

The core value is the public and cultural community working together, connecting Dubliners in significant ways on projects that are relevant to their expressed concerns. Each project has evolved from a series of conversations and are harnessing the appetites of particular groups for cultural engagement.

These programmes focus on creating space for experimentation, modelling new partnerships and testing ways of working. The results will be documented and used to inform future programmes in Dublin communities. #DCCNeighbourhoods
