Cork Community Art Link and Community Arts Partnership, in association with Blue Drum and The School of Applied Social Studies UCC have developed an all-island initiative to explore, through a range of discussions and deliberations, the power of community arts to promote, advocate for and ultimately deliver positive change.
We intend this conference to provide networking, inspiration and peer support for all community organisations who run arts programmes or wish to do so, and for everyone interested in the possibilities of the arts in community and social contexts.

Sea Change: Arts Encounters - Day Two
We present a s
eries of discussions, workshops, and reflection on our practices aiming to build up networking, cooperation and to create a blueprint. Our goal is to offer support and guide a series of further actions, explorations and to deepen the strategy to assist all communities to access participatory and community arts and promote better practice and lasting change.
