Siobhán Clancy is a visual artist concerned with social health. Her practice is located in institutional, civic and cultural spaces. Seeing their collective potential as agents of change, she often collaborates with other artists, activists, youth, community and women’s groups. The outcomes typically materialise as multi-media works, immersive events, participatory performances, dialogues, play and live action in contexts of health, education and justice.
Following graduation in 2005 from NCAD with a BA in Fine Art, in 2014 Siobhán completed a Masters in Community Education, Equality and Social Activism at Maynooth University. Her work on agency, abortion and feminist activism in Ireland has received support from the A4 Sounds Studio Project Award (2016), The Arts Council of Ireland, Create (2015) and INROADS (2015). Recent work in healthcare settings with youth has included artist residency programmes, film screenings, exhibitions and events at The IFI (2014) IMMA (2015, 2016) and The Sugar Club (2017) with Helium Arts. The Arts Council of Ireland (2016), The Department of Education and Skills (2018) and Erasmus+ (2016) have supported her arts in education work with Make Create Innovate.
