The Centre for Creative Ideas is a space where ideas are formed and discussed, a creative space for excellent ideas to happen. During the month of August The Centre for Creative Ideas is housed in a temporary portable structure in the Glandore/Skegoneill interface. The container houses materials both for research and practical use in the form of paper, pens, thread, rubber, sewing machines and tea bags.  It will be a space to come and meet and talk about the great energy saving idea that you have had or solar powered ice cream cart and perhaps in the process make it. The outcome might be a collar that walks your dog, an anti- bullying jacket or a teapot/toast-rack.

‘It can be argued that art is a collaborative process and can’t exist without the help and dialogue of others. Within my practise I perform, direct and facilitate actions, performances and events. These events generally question the pre-existing structures that constitute artist and audience but also question any establishment of behaviours. I aim to integrate audience, making the audience proactive in their experience of the work, democratizing the art experience by encouraging a shared experience. ‘
