What is a Supported Studio?
A supported studio is a sustained creative environment for individuals with specific health or social needs. Supported Studios provide technical artistic support, networks and audiences outside the health and social care settings.
Karolina Poplawska and Mairead O’Callaghan work as dedicated studio facilitators. They have developed relationships of trust and deep familiarity with individual artists. Both Karolina and Mairead work to actively identify exhibition, training and development opportunities with studio participants.
Crawford Supported Studio exists through partnership with Cork City Council, CIT Crawford College of Art, Crawford Art Gallery and Cope Foundation. Most recently we have collaborated with the School of Visual Arts New York, Atypical University Belfast, Cork Printmakers and ADI Ireland.
Yvonne Condon began to develop new work based on the cityscape, during July & August 2020. This project is supported by an Arts & Disability Ireland award. We are really looking forward to showcasing Yvonne’s finished work in 2021.
Yvonne Condon exhibited her work in the University of Atypical Gallery, Belfast in Spring 2020
