Expanded Draught is an international artist collective.It was founded in Galway city in 2006. From Galway it has expanded, to Dublin, England, Canada, Korea, America: Maryland, Texas, Kentucky, Arkansas, Missouri, Louisiana, Ohio, New york, Colorado, Tennessee, Oregon, and Georgia. We have exhibited collaboratively in both America(LA) and Ireland; our aim is to continue our expansion further afield. We are committed to the support of artists in the creation of high quality dynamic art works. We promote collaboration and the sharing of information, skills and knowledge through a series of workshops, talks, discussions and exhibitions.We aspire to create a platform for diverse artists to showcase their work and form relationships with artists from various countries around the world, creating large scale individual /collaborative works, interactive and inclusive projects using both unconventional and conventional spaces.
Starting March 9th 2013 we will hold a large exhibition in Galway city as part of Adapt Galway. We will show the individual work of each Expanded Draught member under the theme of 'when you cut through the present the future leaks out' During this time we would like to hold a series of talks and workshops.
Expanded Draught currently has 23 members some of which will be attending the Expanded Draught festival in March 2013. Each member has a diverse perspective and offers a wide range of knowledge in terms of material fabrication and perspectives on concept.
We are seeking funding to assist with the cost of materials, installation, the exhibition opening, and promotion costs. All our projects to date have been self funded through a series of fundraising gigs, sponsorship and awards.
Any donation you could give would be greatly appreciated.
