DescriptionVisual Arts Focus will be a reciprocal exchange of six professional curators between Ireland and Belgium over four days in 2015 (2-6th June 2015; 18th - 21st November 2015).

In partnership with BAM (the Flemish Institute for Visual Art, Audiovisual and Media Art), the Irish Museum of Modern Art and Culture Ireland, as potential partners, this exchange will work with up to 12 professional curators / artistic directors from Ireland and Belgium. The curators / directors will have significant expertise in their areas with a capacity for international programming and exhibitions in established galleries, museums and cultural venues.

Proposal is initiated and coordinated by Claire Power, currently, working as a cultural consultant between Belgium and Ireland, in conversation with core partners. The funding allocation will be managed by the Irish Museum of Modern Art.

The first stage will happen from 2-6th June 2015 with the visual arts focus trip to Dublin (2 days) and Cork (one day). This time-frame overlaps with the opening of a major Stan Douglas (Canada) exhibition at the Irish Museum of Modern Art, which will provide a dynamic programming highlight and a significant pooling of the art scene during the groups time in Ireland.

There are three strategies (described underneath) for engagement to ensure high-quality visual arts productions and exhibitions will be available for international / Belgian curators. The purpose of the Visual Arts Focus programme is to create opportunities for international presentation and new international co-productions for Irish artists and galleries /museums / institutions in 2016 and beyond.

(1.) Direct invitation
In Ireland, the selection of the six Irish curators / directors is made on the basis of these criteria:
professional senior curators or directors
capacity for international programming
range of scale of venues
Dublin and one county focus (Cork)

The six galleries / museums / institutions invited or participating are:
IMMA - Irish Museum of Modern Art (National Cultural Institution - Cork)
Crawford Art Gallery (National Cultural Institution - Cork)
RHA Gallery (Dublin)
Temple Bar Gallery + Studios (TBG+S) (Dublin)
Dublin City Council: The Lab (Dublin)
Glucksman Gallery (Cork)

The programme of work available to be seen by each of these institutions will be confirmed in January 2015 upon annual funding news. However, a sample of early indication shows are:

Irish Museum of Modern Art / Stan Douglas / solo exhibition / opening early June
Temple Bar Gallery + Studios / Aoibheann Grenan / Rivertrance/ solo exhibition by Irish artist /
Crawford Art Gallery / exhibition of 20th century prints including works by Picasso, Chagall, Miro, Calder, Scott, Freud, Bacon etc. / 
along with exhibitions of selected works from the permanent collection and / 
exhibition composed mainly of post-war British art, celebrating the collector Alice Schwab, who emigrated from Germany to Britain in the early 1930’s

(2.) Studio Visits
In Dublin, there will be one full afternoon (1pm - 6pm) for professional curators to meet with artists and these will be individually based and set-up in advance based on in-depth conversation with the curators’ and matching of their interests. This work will be facilitated by Claire Power, working between the curators in Belgium and artists in Ireland and the Irish Museum of Modern.

In Cork, there will be a series of meetings between artists and curators in the form of artists clinics at the National Sculpture Factory.

(3.) Gallery visits and networking events (described in final section re plans to see other work)

A full and final programme will be sent to Culture Ireland in April 2015.

FilmCork Film Festival2,00014/10/2014
DescriptionIn 2014 Cork Film Festival (CFF) will present an expanded programme of Irish Cinema. With the support of the Irish Film Board, CFF will present approximately 15 new Irish feature length films, 5 of which will be documentary features. In addition to this CFF will present 50 Irish short films and 2 Irish cine-concerts (showcasing Irish musicians and/or filmmakers).

The programme is under development at the time of writing, and so the films cannot be listed in this document. The list of Irish work can be supplied in a supplementary document in mid-September.

Each of the 15 feature films will have one of the 50 shorts playing as a ‘curtain raiser’, meaning that ‘50 shorts’ becomes ‘65’, considerably raising their viewership. Additionally:
An Irish short will play before the Opening Night Gala film to an approx. audience of 925.
There will be two programmes in the "Ideas" section of the programme that will have four Irish short films attached to each programme. The "Ideas" strand of programing is where films are used to engender debates and discussions about the issues contained within and create a participatory forum for the audience.
Five Irish shorts will play in the Screen Director’s Guild showcase, as well as in the competition programmes.
Eight Irish shorts will play in the ‘short film at nine o’clock’ new initiative in Cork venue “Deep South” and other pubs and social venues around the city.
All Irish features and shorts will be programmed so as not to clash with each other, ensuring maximum visibility for both audiences and the proposed visiting international programmers.
The visiting programmers will be provided with a schedule of Irish screenings and venues daily, and where attendance is not possible for the visiting programmers alternate screenings of the Irish work will be arranged.
Within the proposed visiting group, four are programming representatives from international Irish Film Festivals; these four programmers will form a selection jury to award a special award for Best Achievement in Irish Cinema at the 59th Cork Film Festival which will be announced at the Awards Ceremony.
The visiting programmers will be guests of honour at the Incubate networking event. Incubate is a day long talent development session for emerging filmmakers. The visitor’s presence at this event further augments international exposure to Irish work and talent.
These events will occur throughout the festival which runs 7th-16th November 2014, the primary venues being The Cork Opera House, The Gate Cinema and Triskel Christchurch.
