Crawford Supported Studios provide the artists safe studio spaces, art materials, equipment, two long-term studio facilitators, and assistance with transport and communications. It also enables the artists’ access to exhibitions, audiences, peers, and further support in terms of professional training and development.
Established in 2018, Crawford Supported Studios are a partnership project between Crawford Art Gallery and MTU Crawford College of Art and Design to support artists originally from Glasheen Art Studio Programme (GASP) founded by Hermann Marbe, and Cúig (Creativity Unlimited Integrated Group) founded in 2008 by Mayfield Arts Centre.
Dedicated studio days take place in the gallery and the college each week.
Over the years the artists have collaborated with L’ Arche, Cope Foundation and SECAD to support artist members, nurture individual creative projects and to create artist video portraits. The Studio is outward looking and builds links with organizations, artists, schools, community groups and fellow supported studios.
Crawford Supported Studios are a legacy project which honour and sustain the remarkable work that Artist and Nurse, Hermann Marbe, initiated at the John Birmingham Day Care Centre, Cork, in 2009.
The work of Supported Studio Artists is represented in the National Collection.
