As part of the Conference of Irish Geographers, and as a collaboration between the Space and Place Research Collaborative and Galway Dance Days, we are hosting a series of performances, workshops, and discussions across the fields of geography, art and dance, and interrogating various creative and embodied research practices.

Session themes include ‘Place-Based Artistic Work’, ‘Performance Communities’, ‘Spatial Explorations’, ‘Embodied Landscapes’, ‘Curating Place’, ‘Spatial Aesthetics’, ‘Socially-Ecologically Engaged Creative Research Practices’, ‘Urban Environments and Creative Practice’, ‘Memory Work’ and ‘Interrogating Dublin’.

Urban-based and movement workshops are led by artists and practitioners. Special highlights are performances by La Veronal, Elena Gionnatti, Fitzgerald&Stapleton, The Bahh Band and Olwen Fouéré.

The programme may be accessed here. If you are interested in attending any part of this programme you should contact Professor Gerry Kearns.
