The Cúig project, part funded by POBAL, ran at Mayfield Art Centre for almost 10 years until 2017, and was the only programme of its kind in the country during that time.
Creativity Unlimited an Integrated Group, were five artists with intellectual disabilities employed as artists in residence at Mayfield Arts Centre. Supported by a mentoring process, the artists were trained in a wide range of skills that they applied to their own arts practice. They also worked with local schools and provided community art workshops to proactively support the inclusion of disabled people.
Crawford Supported Studio was established in 2018 to support both artists from Glasheen Art Studio Programme (GASP) founded by Hermann Marbe, and Cúig (Creativity Unlimited Integrated Group), founded ten years previously by Mayfield Arts Centre. You can read more about Cúig here
