A Creative Response to Archives of Us: Cork 1918-1922 History & Archives
Deadline: Friday 02 August
Cork City Council invites submissions for an artist response to an Archival project: Archives of Us: Cork 1918–1922 History and Archives Workshop.
In October, a group of up to 15 people will take part in a 3 day workshop over 3 weeks on aspects of Cork’s local history and archives of the 1918 – 1922 and 1618 – 1918 periods. These workshop will encourage critical and creative thinking on this key period of history.
The commission requires an artist response to the project. The artist/s will attend the workshops with the participants and spend 2 days in residence at the Archives to gain an understanding of the collections held and work undertaken there.
Following that the artist will create a response based on the work of the group, the chosen documents and historical and archival themes discovered in the workshop, and discussions with the group. The final work will be permanently located at the City Archives.
