VAI Visual Artists Café: Art vs Function – A Panel Discussion

We are delighted to bring you a series of professional development sessions curated especially for you and the needs of the sector as part of the Creative Peninsula programme.

Where do we draw the line between Art versus Function? How do we classify the perceived value of artistic output versus commercial product?


And in what tangible ways do these perceptions impact artists careers and trajectory?

On Tuesday 10 August Visual Artists Ireland in collaboration with Creative Peninsula invite you to join this discussion as we attempt to mine down into the topic of Art versus Function with a select panel of industry experts and artists.




All events are run independently. Please contact event organiser with questions or for more information.
