Art|Works, Creative Arts and Industries Platform, is a collaborative initiative between UCC, Corcadorca/Theatre Development Centre and Plugd Records. Art|Works is intended to provide a vibrant hub that links Arts students, past, present and future, with academic stakeholders, employers, industry practitioners, and interested members of the wider public. Its aim is to showcase the broad applicability of Arts-degree skills on the job market, for example in the burgeoning creative industry sector. Art|works foregrounds the socioeconomic value of a flexible Arts-educated workforce in a rapidly changing world. In the context of ongoing debate and popular skepticism about the value of Arts degrees, despite Ireland’s disproportionately large contribution to the creative industries given its size, this space for dialogue seems particularly important.
UCC/Art|Works Organizing Committee: Dr. Bernadette Cronin, Dr. Marie Kelly (Drama and Theatre Studies, School of Music and Theatre), Dr. Ed Krcma (School of History), Dr. Rachel MagShamhráin (German Department), James O’Sullivan PhD Candidate (Digital Arts and Humanities).
