Future Forecast: Brokentalkers presents

MELTDOWN

Dates: 04 Jun - 04 Jun

 

Can imagining the future be a collaborative act? What happens when we can’t agree on what to do next?

MELTDOWN is a failure to respond – to a clear brief. A failure to do what’s expected. A failure to do what we agreed to do – because we had more important things to do, because we hoped no one would make a fuss.

MELTDOWN is a response to a failure. A failure of those in power to do what they said they would, because they hope no one will make a fuss. A failure to do what they need to do in order to allow the arts and artists to sustain and flourish in this country.

COVID or no, we are in a crisis. The future for artists is uncertain. And that is perhaps the one thing we can agree on.

Celebrating 20 Years in the Big Blue Building

Exactly 20 years ago the new purpose-built premises of Project Arts Centre reopened amidst huge expectations and speculations on its capacities to live up to its artist-led ethos and continue its creative path dedicated to experimentation and radical practices. There were sceptics and critical voices addressing both the context of the development of the Temple Bar Cultural Quarter and spectacle-oriented, consumer-driven cultural production which some feared Project’s subversive spirit might fall prey to after its refurbishment. An anniversary at most times is an important opportunity to reflect, especially during such transformative moments as those we are living through right now.…
