This special Mayo Ideas Week session with Michael Atavar is an initiative of Mayo County Council Arts Office and Inspiration Station and will take place in The Kennedy Glasgow Centre, The Quay, Ballina, from 10am to 1pm on Wednesday, September 28. This session will be of particular interest to artists, architects, designers, craft artists, and anyone who is engaged in creative production, but it is open to everyone to attend. Mayo County Council Arts Office and Inspiration Station are delighted to host this opportunity for Mayo creatives to engage with renowned creative expert Michael Atavar, on his first visit to the west of Ireland.
The round table for artists, makers, creatives is a session that explores the landscape of creativity – how to start, how to build connections and how to formulate a dialogue, always with the intention of expanding your awareness and developing your creative process. Using his own experience as an artist and teacher, Michael Atavar will encourage your progress: working with what you have, the basic materials that you find around you. The format will be exercises for ones, twos, and threes; expanding your potential by offering you alternative approaches, new ways of seeing, and enhanced group dynamics.
