INTER-CHANGES: CRAFT AND CONTEXT SYMPOSIUM
The formation of a critical context for craft is the subject of a rich
international debate within which, over the last ten years, many disciplines
have found a voice. Irish makers, as they understand and articulate their
practice through the new and evolving language of craft, have begun to take
their place among this intellectual community.The programme of this
symposium offers possibilities for contemporary makers, designers, sculptors
and anyone interested in the crafts to build alliances to sustain
creativity, create new avenues of interest and help ensure future
development of this sector. The symposium is open to the public.


* Symposium Keynote presentations will be made by Glenn Adamson - Head of
Graduate Studies in the Research Department at the Victoria and Albert
Museum, London and Arline Fisch, who has played a central role in the
revitalization of jewellery as a contemporary art form and was Professor of
Art (Emerita) - San Diego State University from 1961 - 2000.


* Contributing international professionals include: Robert Brady (US),
Frances Chapin (US), Vanessa Cutler (UK), Geoffrey Mann (UK), Lesley Millar
(UK), Robert Milnes (US), Alex Robins (US), Sandy Simon (US), and Wayne
Strattman (US).


* Contributing professionals from Ireland include: Stanislava
Antonijevic-Elliott, Nicola Gordon Bowe, Marie Brett, Mary Cahill, Róisín
de Buitléar, Mark Elliott, Sandy Fitzgerald, Michael Flannery, Eleanor
Flegg, Olivier Gaillot, Lisa Godson, Ed Kuczaj, Anna Moran, Hilary O'Kelly,
Cearbhall E. O'Meadhra, Gana Roberts, Georgie Thompson, and Audrey Whitty.

Waterford glass workers from Irish Handmade Glass will demonstrate blowing

throwing demonstration. Please see schedule and blog for more information.
