In March and April 2013, to mark World Community Arts Day, Galway City Community Forum (GCCF), The Community Knowledge Initiative (CKI), National University of Ireland (NUI) Galway, and Galway Community Arts Network (GALCA) came together to organise two networking events as part of the Creative Communities initiative, to bring together people who are active in or interested in Socially Engaged Arts/ Community Arts practices and projects in Galway.
The aims were to provide a space for those interested in Community/Socially Engaged Arts in Galway to reflect on, discuss and map socially engaged arts practices in Galway. We also wished to promote networking between community groups and people working in community arts or socially engaged arts in Galway and artists with an interest in being involved and we were privileged to host Dr Professor Darlene Clover, University of Victoria, Canada as part of the second seminar.
