Draw Out brings the world’s finest street artists to Limerick City, re-imagining and transforming the city’s derelict sites, reversing the relationship between artist & audience, and marking Limerick City as a national and international focal point for the highest quality street art. This project acknowledges the need for an all-city initiative that can connect fractured communities through one body of work while acknowledging their uniqueness. Community involvement and consultation are key elements in the vision of our work. It involves a strategic process of community consultation and analysis combined with interpretative research and is a means to facilitate creative relationships between community and artist.
Draw Out marks Limerick City as a national and international focal point for the highest quality street art. As socially responsive design, the art acknowledges the distinctive culture of ‘place’ and the diversity of the social, political and environmental contexts.
The Draw Out team are graduates of design and cultural studies, educated in professional, artistic practice and the personal, psychological and social benefits of involvement with creativity. The Draw Out team has worked in artistic and event curation/production for 20+ years, including: the staging of events/festivals in Limerick venues/public spaces & the management of a number of city venues and art spaces; the development and management of national and international tours with a number of Irish artists and the development and management of relationships with public and private institutions within the arts, local and national government and enterprise.
