What is a Supported Studio?
A supported studio is a sustained creative environment that centres disabled artists. Supported Studios provide technical artistic support, networks and audiences outside health and social care settings.
About Crawford Supported Studio
Crawford Supported Studio provides safe studio space, dedicated facilitators, art materials, equipment, assistance with transport and communications, access to exhibitions, audiences, peers, and support in terms of professional training and development.
Dedicated studio days take place in the Crawford Art Gallery on Tuesdays and MTU Crawford Art College on Thursdays each week.
Current Crawford Supported Studio Artists:
Katie Whelan, Rosaleen Moore, Tom O’Sullivan, Íde Ni Shúilleabháin, Yvonne Condon, Ailbhe Barrett, Brid Heffernan, David Connolly, Marie Sexton, Stephen Murray, Angela Burchill, Anna Stack, Nicola Moran, John Noel Kenneally, Mary Rose Marshall.
Crawford Supported Studio is anchored by a long term partnership between MTU Crawford College of Art and Crawford Art Gallery, with ongoing support from Cork City Council. Most recently we have collaborated with L’ Arche, Cope Foundation and SECAD to support artist members, nurture individual creative projects and to co-create artist film portraits. The Studio is outward looking and keen to build links with organizations, artists, schools, community groups and fellow supported studios.
A Legacy Project
Crawford Supported Studio is a legacy project. The studio aims to honour and sustain the innovative supported studio established in 2009, by Artist and Nurse, Hermann Marbe, at the John Birmingham Day Care Centre, Cork. Hermann’s focus was always on ability rather than deficit, passionate that artist’s place was in the heart of the city, rather than in the margins.
Crawford Supported Studio was established in 2018 to support both artists from Glasheen Art Studio Programme (GASP) founded by Hermann Marbe, and Cúig (Creativity Unlimited Integrated Group), founded ten years previously by the Mayfield Arts Centre.
