Dublin City Gallery The Hugh Lane and Create are delighted to announce this major opportunity for a collaborative artist(s) to research and deliver a major new commission for Spring 2018.

Location_ Dublin
When_ 2017 into 2018

This commission will run from 2017 into 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.

The commission process will include a research period with the opportunity to develop a new work in collaboration with local and new communities in the surrounding area/ neighbourhood where Dublin City Gallery The Hugh Lane is located. The commission is in two phases Research and Development Strand (March/April/May 2017) and Production (June 2017 – June 2018).

Artists should have a track record and experience of working in the field of collaborative socially engaged practice. They should also demonstrate the ability to connect to and read the complexities of the local area. We particularly welcome proposals, which consider diverse ways to engage with both community and audience.
