The purpose of the conference is to celebrate and commemorate the life and works of internationally renowned Roscommon-born artist Roderic O'Conor. The programme will provide opportunities for the general public to view some of O'Conor's original works, on loan from various institutions at the Roscommon Arts Centre Gallery. Speakers will include Roy Johnston, Pyers O'Conor Nash, Kieran O'Conor, and Roisin Kennedy - a lecturer in the School of Art History and Cultural Policy at UCD. She is a former Yeats Curator at the National Gallery of Ireland and of the State Collections at Dublin Castle.
The conference will serve to forge links with Roscommon Associations and Societies and the Diaspora to preserve our culture and creativity nationally and internationally which is a key action in our Culture and Creativity Strategy.
