It emphasises discipline and commitment to ongoing learning and focuses on both Process and Structure in the act of creating.

Miriam Logan is the facilitator for the day and she will bring participants through aspects of a creative empowerment course which she adapted from her own practice as both an artist and an empowerment trainer.

The workshop is part of a series of a creative sector development programme of supports underway by Creative Ireland Kerry at the Arts Office of Kerry County Council.

Business mentoring days and a peer support events took place earlier in the year and were well supported by artists in the county.

“The workshop offers an opportunity to share challenges as they apply to an artists inherent ability to be creative. Supporting this instinct is a keep element if we are going to support artists to live, work and create from Kerry”, says Kate Kennelly, Arts Officer at Kerry County Council and Creative Ireland Co-ordinator for Kerry. Artists are encouraged to apply as soon as p0ssible as places are limited.
