Ormston House curator Niamh Brown, will deliver an informal talk about her work at Ormston House, focusing on recent projects.
Ormston House is a meeting place for the arts in the heart of Limerick City. The programme is co-designed with artists and citizens, resulting in community partnerships, multi-annual projects, and cultural events that are responsive to the city and its context.
We have developed a participatory model to connect curatorial practice with local knowledge and activism.
