From Context to Exhibitionis the culmination of work created by NCAD, IADT and Tisch third year art students on the Learning Development Programme 2010. The Learning Development programme supports student artists to work collaboratively with communities of place and/or interest to realise contemporary art projects.
Fourteen student artists from IADT, NCAD and the Tisch School of Performing Arts in New York, worked collaboratively in a range of social and community contexts from January to the end of April.

From Context to Exhibition presents the processes and work created collaboratively by the students and seven different ‘community’ and resident groups in and around the city and explores the act of translating the work from the context of production to the gallery exhibition.
This year the participating community and resident groups include: Spirasi; Iona Centre; National Rehabilitation Hospital – Spinal Injuries Ireland; Friends of the Elderly; Panti Bar and Prison Arts Foundation (NI)

OPEN CONVERSATION FOR ARTISTS & COMMUNITIES – Thurs 27 May @ 2pm This is an ancillary event which will encompass critical debate and reflection on artists and communities working collaboratively together. This year’s groups and the student artists will participate. If you are an artist who works collaboratively or a member of a community group who has an interest in this area of practice, come along and join in.
