A Potential Place – Youth Arts Residency
The Phoenix Youth Project
facilitated by Alison Trim and Caoimhe Pendred
Phase 2 - Saturday 4 February - Saturday 6 May 2017
The second phase of this residency, which resumes in February, continues to provide a space for the young people of Skibbereen to engage with contemporary arts practice and Uillinn: West Cork Arts Centre on their own terms. Facilitated by artists Alison Trim and Caoimhe Pendred, who have a history of collaborating on youth arts projects, this phase of the project will culminate in a public event in April 2017.
Each week Open Studio days on Saturdays from 12- 4pm , and Tuesday workshops from 4.30 - 6.30pm are facilitated by the artists, and all young people aged 15 - 25 are welcome to drop in and get involved. The space is also available for those members of the group aged over 18, who have registered with the project, to work in independently throughout the week.
This project is made possible by the National Youth Council of Ireland's Artist and Youth work Residency Scheme, funded by the Arts Council and the Department of Children and Youth Affairs. The project is being run in partnership with the Skibbereen Community and Family Resource Centre and the Phoenix Youth Project.
WCAC acknowledges the financial support of the Arts Council and Cork County Council in making these residencies possible.
