Participation Projects & Open Calls

Clonmel Community Manifesto

We have an exciting project in the works for Clonmel Junction Arts Festival, in partnership with South Tipperary Arts Centre.

Following the open call opportunity for the Reflections visual arts project, artist Sean Taylor sets out to create a ‘Clonmel Community Manifesto’ in response to the challenging year we have experienced during the Covid-19 crisis.

Sean invites the people of Clonmel to create a twelve-point Clonmel Community Manifesto inspired by the stories and events that have shaped us during the Covid-19 pandemic. The ‘Clonmel Community Manifesto’ will be presented as a new visual art installation for this year’s Clonmel Junction Arts Festival, celebrating its 20th anniversary in 2021.

What have you learned from this ‘new normal’?

Twelve manifesto points will be printed (as a list) on a mobile billboard advertisement and will be driven around Clonmel town during the Junction Festival from 3rd - 11th July 2021.

If you are interested in participating in the Clonmel Community Manifesto project, please email your points to Clonmel Community Manifesto project at: clonmelmanifesto@gmail.com

Closing date for entries: 6th June 2021
