Delegates at Creative Connections, Arts and Disability Conference

A two day event for Arts and Disability practitioners, participants and partnering organisations presented by Clare Arts Office.

Clare Arts Office are proud to present Drawing from the Well, a two day Arts and Disability event taking place on Friday 13th and Saturday 14th October, 2017.
Venue: Butter Market, Waterpark House, Drumbiggle Road, Ennis, Co Clare.

The event aims to offer Arts and Disability practitioners, participants and partnering organisations an opportunity to reflect on their practices, be inspired and to revisit the idea of what it means to take “creative risk” in arts and disability practices.

It has been 15 years since the Embrace for Arts and People with Disabilities programme was initiated and Clare Arts Office are proud of the great art work that has been created and the level of knowledge that has developed around arts and disability practice in County Clare.

Having reached this pivotal point they felt it an opportune time to invite artists and coordinators to take time to reflect and to have the opportunity to think about new ways of developing and approaching projects.

Friday, 13th October
The programme includes presentations by leading practitioners such as the Blue Teapot Company, Equinox Theatre Company, KCAT Studios, Speckled Egg Dance Company & Croí Glan Dance Company.
Registration: 9 am – 9.45 am
