I.I.C.S. “INTERDISCIPLINARY INVOLVEMENT AND COMMUNITY SPACES” CORK 2013

 

The European Erasmus Intensive Programme “Interdisciplinary Involvement and Community Spaces” (IICS) is being hosted by the CIT Cork School of Music from the 24 April until the 3 May 2013.

The students and lecturers involved come from ten different countries and represent a wide variety of disciplines (including music, theatre, film, dance, fine arts, architecture, design, media, technology, communication, and social sciences). They will spend ten days in Cork actively collaborating with communities as quasi “Artists-in-Residence”, producing artistic projects, which will be open to the public on Thursday, 2 May.

IICS aims to create an interdisciplinary environment where students can use their skills in new ways to interact with peers from other disciplines to develop an artistic production through actively engaging with the local community. In this way, the social dimension of the collaboration is enhanced and interesting new connections are established between creative artists, communities and audiences.

There are a total of six local communities that will be collaborating with six teams of students as part of the IICS project in Cork: Cork’s Bus Station, The National Sculpture Factory, The Oval Bar (a heritage pub supporting amateur in-house theatre), St Finbarre's Hospital Care Centre, Meitheal Mara (an adult education project supporting builders of old Irish rowing boats,) and Civic Trust House (the heritage building housing the Corcadorca Theatre Company, Cork Film Centre, Cork Folk Festival, Cork Jazz Festival, Cork International Choral Festival, Cork Midsummer Festival, Tigh Filí (cultural centre for writers and poets) and Irish Association of Youth Orchestras.
