Praxis: The Artists’ Union of Ireland are celebrating a policy success, as several changes put forward by our members to the Basic Income for the Arts scheme were implemented by the Department of Tourism, Culture, Arts and the Gaeltacht.
We welcome this effort to recognise our labour and hope that this scheme will be a first step towards a permanent policy that will lift artists out of poverty and precarity.

Slavka Sverakova on closure of Ormeau Baths Gallery, + ACNI reply
"…ACNI spectacularly failed to respect the integrity of this arts organisation and successfully established a homeless status for art that takes risks."

Prof James Elkins' envoi on leaving Art History at UCC
"I find the ongoing emphasis on all things English to be mainly an unfortunate leftover of colonial times – almost a kind of nostalgia."

CIRCA Art Magazine is an independent, artist- and writer-led online art publication. CIRCA takes art production as a dynamic point of engagement: we invite proposals for text and hybrid-media contributions that think with and through art, artworks and art practices, rather than simply about them. CIRCA’s geographical focus is the island of Ireland.

Hi Mastodon, just created an account and not sure how to proceed. So maybe a few words about me might do for a start: I write on art, I do collaborative art projects, I occasionally curate exhibitions, give talks in art colleges and other such like, I edit writings on art for CIRCA Art Magazine. I'm a member of Praxis the Artists' Union of Ireland and like to meddle with arts policies. I live in the west of Ireland. Voila.
