In Conversation: Collaborative Architectural Practice & Placemaking

In April, Engaging Places: Collaborative Praxis in Art and Architecture showcased six leading Irish practitioners in Tate Liverpool as part of the fifth CAPP Staging Post, supported by Culture Ireland’s GB18: Promoting Irish Arts in Britain programme. This showcase and associated events sought to explore the potential of collaborative art and architectural initiatives to address questions of spatial justice and promote creative and collaborative responses to the built environment.

Create, with the IAF, presents an iteration of this project for Irish audiences in an exhibition of video, visual & textual pieces by the six practitioners; artist Michelle Browne, curators Rosie Lynch and Éilis Lavelle from Callan Workhouse Union, artist-architect Blaithin Quinn, and architects Emmett Scanlon and Laurence Lord from Out.Post.Office at University College Dublin.

As part of this ongoing exhibition, join artist-architect Blaithin Quinn, architect Emmett Scanlon, Director of the IAF Nathalie Weadick, and Communications Consultant at Create, Keelin Murray for refreshments and a conversation about collaborative architectural practices, the concept of place- making and the role of the architect in socially engaged work.
