About this event

National Concert Hall, Kevin Barry Recital Room

Please arrive at 1:45pm for a 2pm start.

2pm - 5pm

The recent challenges that Brexit and the global pandemic have raised for the cultural industries underline both the importance and the fragility of our cross-island networks. These challenges impact cross-jurisdictional companies and arts development agencies, as well as the regular movement of artists, arts workers and audiences to create, participate in and experience art and learn with and from one another. The ‘Building Capacity for Cultural Industries’ research team invites you to join us and guest respondent Dr. Milena Dragićević Šešić in exploring and discussing our research on these cross-island relations in dance and theatre with an aim to nurturing connectivity.

Learn about our findings and engage in roundtable discussions about the potential for strengthening connections, which will inform our final report to the Shared Island Unit in the Department of the Taoiseach.

Dr. Milena Dragićević Šešić, is Prof. Emerita, former President of University of Arts, Belgrade, Founder of UNESCO Chair in Interculturalism, Art Management and Mediation. She will seek to interrogate and expand the possibilities for learning, based on her vast experience in cross-border arts and cultural management and policy in Serbia, Croatia and Bosnia and Herzegovina, Cambodia, Laos, Vietnam, and Thailand.

This event is part of a scoping study entitled, Building Capacity for Cultural Industries: Towards a Shared-Island Approach funded by the Irish Research Council's New Foundations Scheme, under the Shared Island Initiative Strand supported by the Shared Island Unit in the Department of the Taoiseach. This project brings together existing academic and sector-based research to understand how all-island relations within the professional, publicly subsidised performing arts of dance and theatre may be nurtured. The project is led by Dr Victoria Durrer (UCD) in partnership with Dr Aoife McGrath (QUB), Theatre & Dance NI, Arts Council Northern Ireland, Dance Ireland, and Dylan Quinn Dance Theatre. Cavan County Council Arts Office, the British Council Ireland and Arts Council Ireland / An Chomhairle Ealaíon are core research participants with Dr. Emma McAlister supporting the work as Research Assistant.
