LATEST NEWS: PLACES MATTER: I am delighted to be a guest delegate at the Arts Council | Local Government “Places Matter” conference at VISUAL Carlow on 24th & 25th March 2022.
Main link to documentation from Declan Gorman Arts & Events prepared for this conference is: https://vimeo.com/685951073/b164ee7460 (opens in new tab). This is a slide presentation (video version with voiceover – 26 mins) entitled “Narratives of People and Place – The Green Belt Arts Initiative”, describing a public art project on the theme of Place on which I collaborated in Fingal 2019-2021. (supported by Fingal Co Co under Infrastructure Scheme)
The same slide presentation as pdf booklet only (ie with no voiceover narration!) can be downloaded at the bottom of this page. There are also links to the website that was created for the culminating Green Belt event last August (Momentum 2021) and to the Arts Council conference website.
Please note also that a full length documentary film about the project is currently being completed and will be released in late April 2022. This current slide show is to whet the appetite and augment the film with still image and textual documentation.
Welcome to the website of Declan Gorman Arts & Events.
I am a playwright, director, performer and public artist with a practice that has covered many aspects of the arts. At the core is an unswerving belief in the power of live performance – the working towards it and the sharing of it – to change, entertain, question, and somehow to make the world around us a better and more exciting place.
This website contains information about current projects; selected archive materials; resources and a “News & Views” section which combines news with occasional reflections and personal essays, mainly but not exclusively about the arts.
