This publication for Firestation Artists’ Studios replaced the former one colour News/Views booklet which had run its course. The new publication changes format and shifts the emphasis towards the artists and their work. The challenge was to introduce colour while sticking to a modest budget. The programme is A2 folded to A3, printed full color plus a spot on Munken paper with a four page essay stitched in.
Located in north east inner city Dublin, the Fire Station Artists’ Studios was established in 1993 to provide support for professional visual artists. Fire Station provides subsidised combined living and working studios for Irish and international artists, large scale sculpture workshop facilities and training opportunities for artists.
The Fire Station training programme has expanded to include digital and film training and continues to host technical training and master classes which incorporate critical reflection. A key policy of the Fire Station is to contribute to the debate on collaborative and socially engaged arts practice, through a commissioning process that incorporates critique.
