What’s happening in the Hub?   

Hope ye are keeping well as we’re coming into fresh Autumn weather (let’s not mention the rain! ) 

Creative Climate Action Project
We’re delighted to be kicking off our Creative Climate Action Project Fund which is funded by The Department of Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport and Media in collaboration with the Department of the Environment, Climate and Communications, which was announced in July.

Artists working in any discipline are invited to apply to become an Embedded Artist with Corca Dhuibhne Inbhuanaithe – A Creative Imagining. Funded by the Creative Climate Action fund, this project invites an artist or artists to creatively engage with the farming community and the Corca Dhuibhne Creativity & Innovation Hub to support participating farmers to identify climate action solutions that will work for them and wider society.  

The Embedded Artist will bring their unique perspective to the project, helping to generate new ways of thinking, fresh perspectives and alternative approaches to the challenges of addressing climate change.  Applications are welcome from individual artists as well as groups or collectives. The selected artist(s) will be supported throughout by the Corca Dhuibhne Inbhuanaithe steering group and the Project Manager. 

Corca Dhuibhne Inbhuanaithe – A Creative Imagining is a Creative Climate Action project managed by Corca Dhuibhne Creativity & Innovation Hub, in collaboration with the Green Arts Initiative in Ireland (GAII) and MaREI (The Science Foundation Ireland Research Centre for Energy, Climate and Marine).  The closing date for the initial selection process is the 3rd of November.

Full details of the project and how to apply can be found on the Dingle 2030 website: www.dinglepeninsula2030.com or by emailing creativeclimateartist@dinglehub.com

The concerts will highlight the incredible views of the Dingle Marina with a multi-camera production, paired with the highest professional sound and lighting. Being part of the Corca Dhuibhne Gaeltacht, Cuan Dingle is honoured and proud to incorporate the Irish language into the series with a number of performers fluent in Irish. 

The Cuan Dingle series is supported by the Department of Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport and Media, under the Live Performance Support Scheme 2021.
