I Want To Know 2015
I Want To Know is a project involving four European partners. These are all specialist artist studios, Cooperations in Luxembourg, SKID in Germany, Pyramid of Arts in Leeds, and ourselves KCAT, in Callan, Ireland.
The project has been in development for some time, and allows learning, sharing and creative networking to happen between all groups. The focus is on the artists from each studio and allowing them to engage in new ways with each other and to be stimulated by new experiences and environments. Each studio artist from the groups will be able to go on at least one of the visits to another participating group.
So far we have visited Wiltz in Luxembourg, and Leeds in England. In October some of us are going to Uberlingen in Germany. The final leg of the project will see KCAT host the other three group early in 2015.
