I’ll be speaking at the VAI Artists Get Together tomorrow in NCAD. Looking forward to an interesting day!
Lisa Fingleton, Linda Shevlin
Linda Shevlin and Lisa Fingleton are artist/filmmakers working in Roscommon and Kerry respectively. Both artists are active agents in their own rural communities collaborating with local communities, developing artist networks as well as working on their own individual practice. This dynamic and interactive presentation will explore some of the challenges facing artists who live in remote rural locations and how these two artists are integrating their lives and practice within their local communities.In this session Linda will speak about her experiences working within the collective as well as her wider practice that often engages collaborative methodologies. Lisa will discuss the three key principles, which help her maintain a sustainable practice: participation, partnership and process. She will share her learning as filmmaker in residence with Kerry County Council and her collaborative, interdisciplinary film and art projects including ‘Come Walk in my Wellies’, and ‘Memory Through Media’
