The Arts Council’s Extending Architecture is a new training initiative for cultural practitioners with an interest in programming, exploring and sharing the cultural and artistic value of architecture with the public. Leading international practitioners, Todo Por la Praxis, Kate Goodwin and Estudio Teddy Cruz + Forman will provide interactive training sessions in Dublin, Galway and Cork in 2016 as part of the Extending Architecture Training Initiative. In addition, each of the three practitioners will make a rare Irish appearance, giving talks which will be free for the public to attend.
These renowned international practitioners Todo Por la Praxis (Madrid), Kate Goodwin (London) and Estudio Teddy Cruz + Forman (San Diego – Tijuana)will share their expertise and insights with training in how to programme, present, collaborate, mediate and work in new ways in architecture.
Recognising that currently in many architectural practices, arts centres, galleries, festivals, civic venues and public spaces around the world, dynamic practitioners are seeking to broaden out the field of architecture beyond the design and construction of buildings alone. This training will reflect these developments and is in line with Arts Council policy and commitment to the public’s engagement with architecture. These examples of ways to engage the public with architectural practices and the presentation of architecture open out a sense of architecture as a platform for collective conversations about the kind of world we live in today.
Eventbrite booking pages for the Public Talks with Kate Goodwin in Galway (April) and Teddy Cruz in Cork (April) will be available in February.
