In the context of our communities and citizens minimising physical engagement, Leitrim County Council is looking for artists that are interested in using on-line technology to provide opportunities for communities to engage with each other and enhance their creativity at this time.While there is any amount of excellent national and international on-line resources available across the creative sector, some of which are outlined below, we are interested in developing be-spoke projects, programmes and activities that are directed to particular communities or cohorts in Leitrim that keep these communities connected.
As such, as well as the artistic quality of the process, quality of engagement is key – engagement between the artist and the group and engagement between the group members themselves.The group may be one which you already have a relationship with. It may be your own immediate community. It could be a youth group, parent and toddler group, mens shed, hens shed, fishing club, book club, housing estates residents group, a whole village, people who live on bogs or near a particular river - communities who up until recently physically engaged with each other on a near daily basis. While every community is currently feeling the impact of isolation, we particularly welcome projects that build on existing relationships with hard-to-reach communities and groups with additional needs.
Expressions of interest are being accepted from now up until Friday 10th April.
Please note that the details of events listed above are provided by the relevant Local Authorities.
