Room 13 Inquiry is a collaborative art education project that assists schools in Fingal investigate the potential of hosting an art studio for their students. During this inquiry participants are provided with opportunities to increase their natural capacity and capability for self-expression, philosophical inquiry and art making. Visits to current art exhibitions and artists’ studios provide essential experiences for connecting with the contemporary art world and ignite dialogue back in the school studio. Each studio operates as a space where people can share ideas, expertise, facilities, and responsibilities, and make art.
We engaged filmmaker Kilian Waters to capture the activities of the students and artists over the course of six weeks this academic year and commissioned a website to share some of the intelligent and honest conversations held by the students over the past three years. The website room13inquiry.ie went live this week.
