The Creative Crèche Programme - Summer 2018

The Creative Crèche Programme - Summer 2018

June 2018

Tue 5 - Fri 29 Jun 2018

Artists Orla Kelly and Andrew Carson will work with two Dublin 15 pre-schools, Barnardo’s in Mulhuddart and Oakridge Pre-school, to explore and respond to the exhibition ‘MAKing Art: The DRAWing Exhibition’ in Draíocht’s Ground Floor Gallery. Through facilitated visits to the Gallery and then back in their own classroom, the children will scribble, doodle, shade and blend with pencils and charcoal as they explore drawing and mark making. It will most definitely be messy, and most definitely be fun. For further information about this Outreach Crèche programme contact sarah@draiocht.ie

HOME consists of two distinct yet related exhibitions focusing on the theme of home.

More than Bricks and Mortar: Works from the IMMA Collection is a collaboration between Draíocht and the children from Room 13 Inquiry, providing a unique and exciting opportunity to reflect on meanings of home for children in contemporary Dublin 15, which has a very young, diverse and multi-ethnic population. It has, in fact, the fastest growing young people’s population under 30 in Ireland, with 26% of the population under 15 years of age. Nearly 25% of the population are described as the ‘new’ Irish which is double the national average. Through sharing experiences of home and exchanging skills and knowledge of contemporary art, collections and curating, this collaboration will result in an exhibition that expands perceived notions of home at personal, social and cultural levels and give voice to a new generation of Irish children. The Irish Museum of Modern Art Programme is designed to promote the widest possible involvement with the Museum’s Collection and programmes, through supporting access opportunities to the visual arts in a variety of situations and locations in Ireland. Room 13 Inquiry is an initiative of Fingal County Council’s Arts Office under the direction of Julie Clarke and led by resident artists Orla Kelly and Anne Cradden. Room 13 studios based in Scoil Bhríde Cailíní NS Blanchardstown and Tyrrelstown Educate Together NS are the first such school-based studios to open in the Republic of Ireland.

Carrier of Memories by Ella Bertilsson and Ulla Juske, curated by Sharon Murphy, is a new commission by Draíocht arising from its INCUBATE programme, which supports young and early career artists to expand and develop their practice and make new work resonant with Draíocht’s context. 
Home can be looked upon as a structure confined between fixed points. It can be somewhere private between family members, a comfort zone, a secure place and a ‘carrier of memories’. Home can also be an experience of belonging, a concept beyond a fixed location. It can be a shelter one only sleeps in for the night, a place in transit across a variety of sites. This multi-media installation is the product of research and practice undertaken by the artist-duo Ella Bertilsson (b. Umeå, Sweden) and Ulla Juske (b. Pärnu, Estonia) during their recent residencies in Draíocht and Nordic Artists’ Centre Dale (Norway). The artists are based in Dublin since early 2000s. They started to collaborate during their postgraduate studies on the MFA; Art in the Digital World Programme at NCAD, Dublin (2015).

HOME is shown in the context of Draíocht’s major theatre initiative in October 2018, HOME THEATRE (IRELAND), funded by the Arts Council’s Open Call.
