The Art of Inclusion
13 September–26 October 2013

The Art of Inclusion is an exhibition that will showcase the artwork of over 50 truly unique artists working in supported studio settings. The exhibition is a groundbreaking collaborative project aiming to promote real dialogue around ideas of creativity and ability.

We invite you to get involved in an exciting outreach programme in the Crawford Art Gallery, which will accompany the exhibition. This multi-faceted programme is free of charge and is open to groups and individuals - from school children and teens, to older adults.

The Art of Inclusion is the outcome of a partnership between Cork City Council, Crawford Art Gallery, CIT Crawford College of Art & Design, Mayfield Arts Centre/Newbury House. The exhibition will spread over three venues across Cork City from mid-September until the end of October this year; Crawford Art Gallery located in the heart of the city, the Atrium of the City Hall and CIT Wandesford Quay Gallery.

Artists from Creativity Explored in San Francisco, HAI of New York, Kunstwerkplaatsfrom Amsterdam,  Rocket Artists (Brighton) as well as Kcat (Kilkenny), St Raphaels (Youghal), Glasheen Artists Studio Programme (Cork) and Cùig (Mayfield, Cork) will showcase an international selection of art by artists with disabilities working in supported studios.
