LOCIS seminar

The Dock, Carrick on Shannon, Co. Leitrim

Friday 28th and Saturday 29th November 2014

Locis is a collaborative artist in residence programme funded under the EU Culture Programme between Leitrim County Council Arts Office; the Centre of Contemporary Art in Torun, Poland; and Residence Botkyrka, Sweden. Locis was designed to provide knowledge, resources and opportunities for artists to engage internationally and to reinforce the principle that a vibrant arts practice should, and can, be maintained from anywhere and that networking across borders can occur from anywhere and with anyone.

The two-year Locis programme concludes at the end of November with a seminar on Saturday 29th which looks at the wider context of international collaboration and artists residencies with that. On the Friday evening there will be a tour of the exhibition LOCAL by the five artists participating in the 2014 residency in Ireland and a talk about the historical context which underpins the work.

Chaired by critic and lecturer Declan Long, the seminar on Saturday features – Natalia Cieślak; Dobrila Denegri ; Sarah Kim; Joanne Laws; Audrey Keane; Sam Moore; Sasa Nabergoj; Seamus Nolan; Joanna Sandell; Anik See; Dominic Stevens; Johan Thurfjell; and Aleksandra Wasilkowska.
