Ormston House is delighted to be selected for the Creative Europe Co-operation Projects 2018 with our international partners from the Baltic Sea Cultural Centre (Poland), Fablevision (Scotland), Intercult (Sweden), the Municipality of Livadia (Greece), and the Municipality of Ostende (Belgium). Our project titled The Memory of Water is one of 84 successful proposals selected from 401 applications across Europe and scored 90/100 points.
Ormston House Co-Director, Mary Conlon is Artistic Director of the project which engages in topical debates on the future of post-industrial waterfront heritage zones and focuses on three of the Creative Europe Culture Sub-Programme priorities: transnational mobility, capacity building, and audience development, through artistic research and residencies. The project was evaluated by the Education, Audiovisual and Culture Executive Agency and awarded €199,793.89.
Many thanks to the Creative Europe Desk Ireland at the Arts Council for their support through the Creative Europe Travel Award.
