I’m happy to be a co-founder of Angelica Network, an Ireland-wide network which amplifies the voices of women and non-binary artists of minority cultural and minority ethnic backgrounds. Together with the brilliant Jane Morrow, we worked on establishing the network for a few months before the launch and it’s a delight to see it public, as well as the engagement in our Instagram account @angelica.network.
It started with a Tweet, ‘I wish I had a resource in form of a list of POC women artists based in Ireland/NI,’ which led to a DM conversation about how to help with the challenges of finding artists at all stages of their careers from different parts of the island, and www.angelica.network was born.
Angelica aims to amplify the voices of self-identifying women and non-binary artists of minority cultural and minority ethnic backgrounds who are based on the island of Ireland. We created this resource with a view to contributing to change. Our hope is that it will grow into an invaluable resource for curators and producers throughout Ireland, helping to nurture a visual art community built on care and accountability.
We’d like to thank all of the artists, the curators and producers who suggested artists, and our amazing designer Natali Bleich.
