ID PROJECTS - Identifying Your Community - Open Evenings

De Valera Library, Ennis, Co. Clare - Tuesday, March 29th from 7p.m. to 8p.m.
Arts Office, Ennistymon Library, Co. Clare - Wednesday, March 30th from 7p.m. to 8p.m.

Do you belong to a community, social or voluntary group living in Co. Clare?
Do you have something to say? Galway Film Centre would like to offer you a unique opportunity.

We are inviting your group to participate in a very rewarding, exciting and challenging scheme.

In association with Clare County Council and the Arts Council Galway Film Centre is very pleased to announce the fifth round of ID PROJECTS. ID offers groups the opportunity to make their own documentary, based on the theme of identity and deliver their own voice and message.

To participate in ID PROJECTS, you need to have something to say, a unique voice which will encapsulate your community, tradition, lifestyle, views and culture. The chosen group must be able to make a commitment to the project during the months of May, June and July.

A professional documentary maker will facilitate the entire process and work to suit the group's availability and individual needs. The audio-visual medium gives people immediate access to a multitude of theoretical, technical and aesthetic skills and is a most powerful tool in enabling communities to explore, develop and express their individual and collective artistic creativity.

To date such groups as Shannon Community Workshop, The Centre for Independent Living, The Friends of the Children of Chernobyl, St. Grellans Housing Estate, Aids Help West and MaamWomen's Group have successfully completed ID PROJECTS with their stories screened in the Town Hall Theatre, Galway and at the Galway Film Fleadh.

For more information and application forms please contact Tracy / Nuala at the Galway Film Centre at 091-770748 or email: manager@galwayfilmcentre.ie

We will be happy to answer any questions you may have at our "Open Evenings" on Tuesday, March 29th from 7p.m. to 8p.m. at the De Valera Library, Ennis, Co. Clare and on Wednesday, March 30th from 7p.m. to 8p.m. at the Arts Office, Ennistymon Library, Co. Clare

Closing date for ID 2005 is April 14th.
