Cork Community Art Link based in Blackpool, Cork City and Community Arts Partnership based in Cathedral Quarter, Belfast, associated with Blue Drum and The School of Applied Social Studies UCC have developed an all-island initiative to explore, through a range of discussions and deliberations, the power of community arts to promote, advocate for and ultimately deliver positive change.
Following on from Community Arts Partnership’s “What Next” conference in May 2018, SEA CHANGE heralds a new collaboration to promote understanding, deepen practice and find greater ways to include diverse communities and promote social wellbeing. In the aftershocks of Brexit, diverse and distant communities of place and of practice will come together, to foster meaningful long-term change on the island through socially sensitive art making.
