In this latest Ep, I chat with artist Kate O'Shea from Broken Fields, a multi-disciplinary collective made up of individual practitioners Louise Harrington, Enya Moore, Aideen O’ Donovan and Kate O’ Shea.

Broken Fields brings together experience, knowledge, and practice from the fields of socially engaged art, architecture, community work, activism, research, and writing. The name Broken Fields refers to the breaking down of disciplines, siloes, and fields. In the breaking down of these constructed boundaries, Broken Fields brings together the strengths of diverse practices in processes, projects and spaces that are deeply place-based.

In partnership with Clonmel Junction Arts Festival, Broken Fields 'Art, What is it good for?' is a social space guided by the question: ‘How can we co-create a space with the public in Clonmel?’ Festival Activities included collective canopy making, printmaking and conversations with a series of invited artists, printmakers, community workers, architects, writers, musicians, and activists, culminating in a very busy day at STAC on Saturday 8th July!

The exhibition continues until August 5th, and features a working space where visitors can add a piece to the collective art wall, browse the large Broken Fields archive, or just take a break from the world outside. Gallery open Tuesday - Saturday from 10am-5pm.
