CCA Programme Launch
CCA hosts a programme launch, seminar and a ground-breaking party in our future home at 10-12 Artillery Street.
The seminar, takes place first with representatives from leading art venues, such as Annie Fletcher, Curator, Van Abbemuseum, Eindhoven; Francis McKee, Director, CCA Glasgow, Glasgow; Ciara Hickey, Gallery Manager, Belfast Exposed, Belfast; Séamus Kealy, Director/Curator, The Model, Sligo, Peter Richards, Golden Threads Gallery, Belfast, and Aileen Burns & Johan Lundh, Co-Directors of CCA Derry~Londonderry. Presenters discuss their strategies for exhibition making, collaboration, fundraising, and most importantly, propose models for moving forward together.
The seminar is followed by get-together with the speakers and local and regional dignitaries such as Mayor Alderman Maurice Devenney of the City of Derry, Caoimhin Corrigan of Ilex Urban Regeneration Company, and Deidre Robb of the Art Council of Northern Ireland, which is open to the general public.
Then local DJ Stephen McCauley entertains the crowd.
