Welcome to Drawn From Borders; a project led by artists for artists that explores the concept and reality of borders, specifically  the border created 100 years ago by The Partition of Ireland.

The project supports the artists participating in the project to research and develop work collectively and independently. A key element of this is to meet face to face as often as possible and to keep in touch online through this website in the intervening periods so that we support each others’ development.

Drawn From Borders is a free creative engagement programme exploring key moments in Ireland’s history, delivered by Artlink, Nerve Centre and the Tower Museum.

This was an opportunity for Artlink members to look creatively on the events of 100 years ago, borders and Brexit and to generate a creative output in response. The resulting work will formed part of a new online programme ‘Dividing Ireland’ by Tower Museum in  2020 that will examine important events during 1920-22, including the Partition of Ireland and will cover themes around borders.

The programme is part of the ‘Understanding the Decade of Centenaries’ project being delivered by the Nerve Centre in partnership with the Tower Museum and supported by the European Union’s PEACE IV Programme, managed by the Special EU Programmes Body (SEUPB).
