SCRATCH

by Sophie Meehan

Call: Why do I buy scratchcards when I know I won’t win?
Response: Because someone has to win.
Call: Why do I pray when I don’t believe in God?
Response: Because someone might hear me.

This year Sophie Meehan has been buying a lot of scratchcards. It’s been the worst year of her life, but some good things have happened. She won 8 euro once. In a new performance art piece, she’ll share her rituals and indulgences and play the game of chance, just once. She won’t hear your responses, she won’t know if you’re there, but she’ll do it anyway. Pray responsibly, pray for fun.

”I am in control” – this is what we tell ourselves when we walk home at 3 o’clock, stumbling, trying our best to move normally, paranoid that others may know; you are not in control.

LOCKDOWN LETTERS

Hi there,  How are you doing today? We hope you and your family are staying safe and sane during these strange days. We've been thinking about how we stay connected. It's not easy. Some of us have to stay indoors all the time. Others mostly all of the time. We've had letters and postcards through our letterboxes that made us smile. We've got emotional sending messages of support and solidarity to others. Some of us have wifi, Social Media and laptops. Some of us don't. So, we're starting LOCKDOWN LETTERS. To try to stay connected to as many of our…

Future Forecast Online

Who “gets” access to cultural and creative spaces? What happens to a “programme” when no rules apply? How does a building and an organisation inform the art it facilitates/creates/presents and how does that art, in turn, impact it? What questions are artists asking and how can a cultural organisation help artists explore potential answers? Future Forecast is a multiway transmission with 2020+ vision. In the future, everyone is an artist, everyone is the audience, and everyone is invited. Una Mullally   This summer, Project Arts Centre was going to present Future Forecast, a series of events and artistic interventions forming…
