Annual Open
Submission Exhibition

Curated by Julie Spollen.

Julie Spollen holds a B.Des from NCAD and an MA from Royal College of Art. She works in community and

care settings in Offaly. Her socially-alert practice is durational and focuses specifically on artistic interactions working with older participants.

She practices collaborative critical thinking in art and design contexts in order to enhance living conditions for participants and the wider community. Julie nurtures partnerships with an evolving collective of professionals and institutions to advocate for the role of place and place-making in cultural engagements and environments. She believes that sustainable communities need opportunities for social connections, equity and inclusion.
