Exit 15: A Creative Placemaking Project
Exit 15 was a partnership programme between Dún Laoghaire Rathdown County Council and Creative Lives (formally Voluntary Arts Ireland) working with people and organisations living, working and based in the Ballyogan area from 2016 - 2020.
Working in the field of local arts is a long term practice that involves the commitment and reflexive engagement of many stakeholders.

Exit 15 responded to the artistic aspirations of local people and organisations living and working in the Ballyogan area of Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council (dlr). At the heart of the project was a desire to be open to learning, open to our failure, and to share our experiences with others.
Project researchers, Dr. Victoria Durrer (UCD) and Meadhbh McIlgorm will join dlr Assistant Arts Officer Máire Davey in reflecting with Dr. Anthony Schrag (QMU) and Dr. Leila Jancovich (Leeds University) on the possibilities and the questions Exit 15 raised regarding place-specific work, perceptions of cultural participation, the voice of the artist, and the challenges and potential of participatory decision-making in local arts provision. This talk will be chaired by Damien McGlynn, Ireland Director, Creative Lives
