Cloudlands Project seeking artists
Helium is inviting applications from multidisciplinary artists to participate in Cloudlands in hospitals in Dublin, Cork and Galway.
Cloudlands is a new arts and technology project for teenagers with chronic illnesses. The project will take place between November 2012 and July 2013 in hospitals in Dublin, Cork and Galway. The project will place an artist in residence in each of the three hospitals where they will work collaboratively with patients to develop arts projects based on the participants’ ideas, interests and experiences.
Central to Cloudlands is the development and use of an online creative space where artists and teenagers will collaborate and share their work across the three hospitals.
This is a mentored project, which will enable artists to develop their own practice and benefit from the support of award winning artist and director Mark Storor. Mark Storor is a highly experienced practitioner, working in the space between live art and theatre. Most of his work is devised, site specific and collaborative.
The deadline for applications is 8th October at 4.30pm. Please download the artists’ brief below or email email@example.com
