As part of the 2020 Liverpool Irish Festival, a Cultural Connectedness Exchange was held to introduce Irish and Northern Irish artists to Irish and Northern Irish cultural commissioners and providers (mainly in England), to determine
• the needs of Irish and Northern Irish artists (particularly those working in England or with England-based organisations)
• barriers they were facing post-Brexit and during Covid-19
• how cultural providers/commissioners could provide value/service in relation to Covid-19/Brexit.
This initial meeting has progressed to a (roughly) bi-monthly network meeting, which will advance ideas presented in this paper (LINK) and work together to create a positive, representational network that supports and promotes Irish and Northern Irish arts and Culture in England (and Britain more widely) using its membership.
We intend for this to become a valuable network to any Irish or Northern Irish artist wanting to work in public art delivery as well as to cultural providers and commissioners who focus -or could focus- on Irish and Northern Irish work.
The network is still young and welcomes new additions. If you need any further information, please contact the Liverpool Irish Festival Director, Emma Smith, on [email protected]
Future meeting dates are set for 25 May, 20 July, 26 Oct and 14 Dec 2021.
The third network session was held on 23 Mar 2021:
