MOVING WITH ART

Friday, 17 December, 2021 - 16:27

DANCE LIMERICK and LIMERICK CITY GALLERY OF ART

MOVING WITH ART is a dance and visual art collaboration designed for primary schools. The project is led by DL.BRIDGE Curator Philippa Donnellan, and Limerick City Gallery Learning Coordinator Brendan Egan.

MOVING WITH ART is intended to excite young people’s interest in the visual arts and to ignite enthusiasm for movement and the art form of dance. Taking inspiration from the artwork from current exhibitions at Limerick City Gallery, each project offers a unique sensory experience and a chance for young people to use their minds and bodies to explore, learn and respond to art.

Designed to encourage a cross-curricular and collaborative approach, class teachers are invited to work alongside the artists throughout the project, in order to guide the young people through this artistic journey of discovery.

Each MOVING WITH ART project involves 1 class group and their teacher. It takes place at Limerick City Gallery of Art and/or Dance Limerick and includes 4-5 creative workshops and a final informal presentation.

Dance Limerick exists to support the development of professional dance artists within the Limerick region and beyond.

Through a combination of performance platforms, residency opportunities, master classes, talks and lectures, Dance Limerick will advocate for artistic dialogue and exchange. In collaboration with dance artists across a range of practices, Dance Limerick will promote the creation of new and innovative work and will devise programmes of access, engagement and participation for the wider public.

Based at the premises of the former Daghdha Dance Company, Dance Limerick houses offices and a fully equipped studio space along with a separate performance venue known as the Daghda Space
