OPPORTUNITY: Commission, Dublin

Design & Crafts Council of Ireland 
Design and Craft Council of Ireland in partnership with  The National Museum of Ireland, Decorative Arts & History is seeking expressions of interest from designers and makers interested in working within the context of marking the centenary of the 1916 Rising and the theme of collective identity. The aim is to create a new contemporary collaborative design work utilising the NMI’s Decorative Arts & History Collections as a key resource.

 This project involves the commissioning of a designer to create new work/s on the theme of ‘Collective Identity’, which will be displayed in an exhibtion at the National Museum of Ireland, Collins Barracks, Dublin in 2016. The exhibition will include the designer’s own original work/s and also works created in collaboration with a group of adults, as part of a series of workshops. The combined work will be exhibited in Collins Barracks in 2016 to coincide with a conference on this theme.

A key aim of this project is to consider the theme of Irish identity in an inclusive society. We are seeking proposals from designer(s) with a track record of innovative, collaborative engagement practice within the field of design. The commissioner is seeking imaginative and transformative contemporary design responses
