Propagate – Catalyst Arts – 3 to 12 Oct

How do ideas grow?

Propagate is a public programme of workshops and events initiated by Catalyst Arts which will take place during the 3 – 12 October 2020. Artists will work together with selected participants to explore ideas around collaboration, writing and performance.

This programme aims to encourage cross-disciplinary collaboration and exchange; how do we learn from one another and where do practices overlap? Through this series of events, in the gallery and at various locations, a space for dissemination and the sharing of knowledge will be created. 

Artists and practitioners Kevin Breathnach, Niamh Seana Meehan, Nollaig Molloy, Suzanne Walsh and The Tangerine will lead a series of workshops for selected participants which will aim to cultivate and foster new ways of working within an art practice. 


  1. Saturday 3 – Sunday 4 October: Cite, Nollaig Molloy
  2. Saturday 10 – Sunday 11 OctoberWriting in an Art Practice, Suzanne Walsh, Kevin Breathnach and The Tangerine
