Event Details

 CCI is delighted to be joining with Dublin Fringe Festival 2020 to commission three manifestos from three sets of trailblazing Irish artists in response to a curatorial call for radical and unapologetic work: Utopias & Uprisings! You are the architects of the next decade. In a world where we’re forced to dream of functionality, it’s time to find the function in dreams. We trust your visions, and we’ve stockpiled for their realisation.

The artist collectives gender. RIP, We are Griot and Glitterhole have been chosen  to write and share their manifestos for the new era they want to usher in.

The manifestos will take the form of online audio recordings and posters to be displayed in Dublin and at CCI from 5 to 20 September, as well as appearing in print with 12 pages of the Fringe 2020 brochure dedicated to the manifestos.

Furthermore, the artists' visions will be invested in through support for their artistic practice and company development in winter 2020 with special residencies at Centre Culturel Irlandais and FringeLAB.

Admission Free.
